An eyesore is about to come down.
On Monday, the Niles City Council approved the demolition of a Cass Street property that was heavily damaged when a tree fell on it during a winter storm in December 2012.
The property is located at 511 Cass Street.
According to a council report, the owner of the structure did not move forward with plans to repair the structure, which remains a potential safety hazard and nuisance to the community.
