Batavia Historic Preservation Commission upholds building classification
BATAVIA – Over the objections of Batavia Mayor Jeff Schielke, the Batavia Historic Preservation Commission has decided to stick with its recommendation to upgrade the historical classification of a building at 106 N. River St. from “contributing” to “significant.”
Commissioners Monday voted 3-2 to keep its recommendation in place. Historic Preservation Commission Chairman Phil Bus broke a 2-2 tie by voting in favor of the recommendation. Commissioner Cathy Searl abstained from voting because she has done work for the Larson Becker Co., which owns the property.
“The building is 100 or so years old,” Bus said. “I thought it represented the agrarian part of Batavia’s history.”
