The demolition of several downtown buildings on 6th Street in Hancock may now start on the afternoon on Sept. 13 (Wednesday) as some construction equipment has arrived. If demolition work does not start today, it most likely would be tomorrow morning. The buildings will be demolished to create space for a new 12-unit apartment complex

Justin Cronen of Community Development Bank in Hancock, one of the partners in the apartment project, said the demolition should take about five days.

Curious residents who may want to watch the demolition should do so from a safe distance and a safe area such as from across the street in the vacant lot near the bank Cronen said.
