Charlotte Avenue Church of Christ may be demolished this week

A report from Metro Council member Jason Holleman regarding very sad news for this important intersection and for Sylvan Park.:
I heard in late December that the Charlotte Avenue Church of Christ was planning to demolish the church at 4508 Charlotte Avenue, even though they don't have a buyer for the property.  Today, one of the church leaders called to confirm that decision and told me that the building will be taken down later this week.  Two years ago, I filed a bill in the Council to buy the building more time.  Unfortunately, time has now run out, and unless a buyer comes forward immediately, it will be too late.  I wanted to share this information with the neighborhood because I believe that the demolition of this building will be a blow to the unique and historic feel of Charlotte Avenue.
