I’m not entirely sure what the issue is, I can understand the need to tear it down if you can’t repurpose the existing structure. However, tearing it down because it’s creepy eyesore? IMHO, as far as historical value, consider how old the building is and what it used to do. The Moran Power Plant offered Burlington electrical power, facing off against gas lights in our homes. To me, that’s pretty neat.

That didn’t go to well…

Little surveillance by authorities, but there’s currently no easy way in.
