The famed potato shed building near downtown Hemet has been vacated by Agri-Empire and the city is expected to begin tearing it down in the coming months.
The building sits on the site where Hemet officials hope to build a new courthouse. The first step in clearing the site was having Agri-Empire complete its lease and move out of the facility, which happened earlier this month.
