Building Demolition?

Recommended Posts

In the long run, the cost of maintaining these buildings so they don't become eyesores or dangerous greatly exceeds the cost of tearing them down.

Why?

Cost to taxpayers? 

When will UND quit burning taxpayer dollars?

Why is this occurring?  Educate me please.

The answers to all of your questions are in the article you linked to. ;)

... an ongoing effort to cut back the university's footprint while knocking down deferred maintenance costs.

This will actually save money.

Why? These are non-producing, net-negative assets. They cost to operating and maintain but are no longer useful. 

Taxpayers should be applauding this move.

The buildings scheduled for demolition this summer (per Herald article) are: 

314 Cambridge
Strinden Center
2912 University Avenue
317 Cambridge
Era Bell Thompson Center
International Center
Women's Center

Chandler Hall, which was built in pieces and contains the oldest structure on the UND campus, is the last building scheduled for demolition and is expected to be taken down next summer. 

I see those structures and between age, type, occupancy, and the 1997 flood, the buildings can not be in a good way. Clean them out.

This needs to be demolished at taxpayer expense?

If I remember right, wasn't there a Valley Dairy store in the basement in the 70's
