The Enos Park Neighborhood Improvement Association will host a discussion of “deconstruction” of vacant buildings at a meeting Tuesday.
Enos Park has seven houses ready to be removed as part of its master plan. Some items already have been salvaged, but advocates are considering the more expanded approach of trying to save the majority of all building materials.
Tom Napier, president of the Building Materials Reuse Association, will speak Tuesday. Also invited are Karen and Barry Jacobs, who hope to create a citywide deconstruction movement, and Joe and Rebecca Dobbs, who, stick-by-stick and brick-by-brick,removed a vacant house next to their home on North Eighth Street (see their Facebook site, “Deconstructing 925”).
