Clock running on Wendler claim

With a workshop and individual briefings to commissioners completed over the past several weeks, Historic City News will be watching as commissioners face a decision Monday at their regular 5:00 p.m. meeting on a response to Donna and Scott Wendler.

The Wendlers filed a Notice of Intent to Seek Relief under the Bert Harris Private Property Protection Act, requiring a city response by November 1st.

They claim that they have suffered a $3.4 million financial loss due to the city’s denial of requests to demolish seven homes in the King and Oviedo streets area for a boutique hotel.

Eleven categories of possible response are spelled out, ranging from approval of the plan or compensation to no change in the city’s action denying the demolition request.
