The Bloomington Common Council’s weekly session Wednesday was a committee of the whole and considered two ordinances to pass at a later session.
Historic home preservation
A house at 1033 S. Ballantine Road has been the subject of historical preservation. House owners Eric and Lee Sandweiss petitioned to have the ranch-style house be considered for historic preservation and named after the builder Nathan Silverstein. The house, built in 1951, is located in Maxwell Manors, which Silverstein helped develop, among other housing developments. The Sandweisses said they believe the house is representative of architecture of the time period. The council recommended they pass the ordinance 8-0.
A property at 4023 W. Third St. has been proposed to be for commercial use instead of private development. The petitioner, GMS-Pavilion Properties, wants to open a dialysis center and another medical facility on the property. The council recommended they pass the ordinance 8-0.
