SAVE 18th & Howard
Another historic downtown building leveled for hasty development. Sound familiar? Recently, the Douglas County Commissioners voted to take, by eminent domain, a four-story, 1920 brick building, the McCaffrey, at 18th and Howard Streets. Their plan includes demolishing this property for a new structure to house a juvenile justice facility. The current owner is a preservationist dedicated to saving the building and converting the empty space into loft apartments. There are other options.
