WATERVILLE — City councilors on Tuesday will consider approving the demolition of the former Greyhound bus terminal on Airport Road.

The city-owned building is deteriorating, its roof is leaking and mold is growing inside, according to City Manager Michael Roy. He said the building was most recently used to store furniture given to those in need, he said.

Because of its condition, the building is an eyesore to flights coming into the Robert LaFleur Municipal Airport, according to the resolution councilors will consider Tuesday.

“We don’t really see it as serving any city purpose in the future,” Roy said Friday.

The council meeting will be at 7 p.m. and will be preceded by a 6:45 p.m. executive, or private, session to discuss real estate negotiations.

Those negotiations concern the proposed sale of a vacant building at 10 Temple St. downtown to Janis Lazarian, Frank Della Femina and Cheryl Cayer for $10,500.


The city took the building for nonpayment of taxes. Lazarian, Femina and Cayer plan to develop it into studios and residences.

Councilors July 21 voted to approve selling the building to them and will consider taking a second, final vote Tuesday.

In other matters, councilors will consider making an amendment to the city’s zoning ordinance to allow a preschool and child development service to open at 30 Chase Ave.

The amendment would eliminate the requirement for properties in the institutional zone to have 200 feet of road frontage on a public street. The council took a first vote on the proposed change July 21 and will consider a final vote Tuesday.
