It was only Tuesday night when the Blue Grass Trust hosted Sarah Tate and a panel discussion on midcentury modern architecture. What a travesty it would be to lose one of Lexington's finest examples of the period at this time. And for what cause?

It is my understanding that demolition permit was issues some time ago for this property, though preservation considerations had seemed to carry the day. Just a couple weeks ago, moving the structure was discussed and promoted by several parties as it could become the home for a local non-profit. See Herald-Leader.

This was only a couple weeks ago. What has changed? Why the rush to demolish?

Give the Peoples a chance.
