MOUNT VERNON — The landscape of West High Street will soon change as demolition of the Mazza building, 218 W. High St., is set to begin as soon as September or October under the Moving Ohio Forward demolition grant program. The iconic property qualifies as part of the grant program due to its classification as a “mixed use” property, according to Amy Shocken, county community development consultant. The building includes the former restaurant and eight residential apartments.
A mandatory pre-bid walk through was held Monday so contractors could tour the building. Only one contractor was in attendance.
According to the bid guidelines, all work must be completed by Dec. 31, 2013.
