According to Mayor Herb Roach, demolition work at Southview Plaza will begin later this week or early next week. The building on the west side of the parking lot and everything up to the fence on the Papa John’s building will be torn down. Soil remediation will begin after that. The final portion of the building will come down once Papa John’s can move into a new location, however Mayor Roach didn’t indicate where that would be. Roach said there are no plans yet for new businesses.
