The owner of the Pure Oil gas station building in Geneva, Illinois is appealing a ruling by the city’s Historic Preservation Commission, which denied him permission to tear down the building to put in drive-through lanes for a bank. The city council meets to discuss the matter on March 26.
Opponents of the demolition have put up a petition online asking the mayor and city council to save the building.
