SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — It looks like we will have to wait another couple of days before a decision is made on whether to turn an old building on the north side of Syracuse into a historic site.
The building sits on the corner of North State Street and East Belden Avenue and houses San Miguel Mexican Restaurant.
The owner was not in attendance for Wednesday’s city council meeting. That’s one of the reasons the board chose not to vote Wednesday on the building’s future, as they wanted to hear from the owner again before making a final decision.
“You know, with historic properties, when you designate this, there’s tax credits that become available with the financial hardships that come with maintaining like that that you’re also being able to receive a little bit of a break to do the right thing of a property of a neighborhood,” said Joe Carni, 1st District City Council.
Carni says he’s in favor of protecting the spot on North State Street. The vote should happen Monday.
