Courting the Wrecking Ball

Demolition crews strip the old courthouse on Victoria

The old Chilliwack courthouse as it looked on Sunday.

 

t looks like curtains for the old courthouse on Victoria Avenue. On Friday, crews were discreetly dismantling the building in the back. Stripping a building down to a shell is a sure sign it's coming down.

 

The structure on my street, has been plagued by metal theft, small fires and a raft of other nefarious incidents over the last 10 years that it's sat vacant. Somewhat baffling are the 2-hour maximum parking signs left behind from that era up and down Victoria.

 

There is no word from the City on when the building is slated for demolition.
