Memphis: Union Ave United Methodist Church
The battle in Memphis over the proposed demolition of the Union Avenue United Methodist Church continues to rage on. The opponents have now filed suit, evidently not based upon land use planning principles so much as upon a deed restriction which might be an easier case to win. The Commercial Appeal reports on the lawsuit here. Over this past weekend, a number of protesters showed up to draw attention to the proposed demolition. CVS Pharmacy has purchased property and has received approval from the city to demolish the building and build a new store. A report on the protest over this weekend, complete with video, can be found here.
