HILLSBORO — After five months of being blocked off by a fence since the partial collapse of one of three buildings on June 3, the area that formerly encompassed 115, 117 and 119 W. Main St. in Hillsboro is now free of the enclosure, with all demolition and clean-up work completed.

According to Hillsboro Interim Service/Safety Director Dick Donley, “The clean-up has been completed” by demolition contractors, and the area has been filled in with, “new dirt and materials,” and the demolition rubble has been “hauled off-site.”

Donley said that because the demolished properties belong to, “three different owners,” including the City of Hillsboro, which owns the smallest of the lots following an earlier property transfer, the future fate and planned use of the space is unknown.

“We don’t have any plans for the future,” Donley said, because, “It’s still private property” for the owners.
