City’s largest eyesore not on the list for razing

As a former resident of the city of Wheeling -I get back there quite frequently – I watch what is happening via the News-Register’s website.

I read about the “city fathers” wanting to demolish this building and that building and many other “eyesores” around the city but never do I see anything about tearing down the biggest eyesore of them all. That is the old Roger’s Hotel on 14th St. This hotel – or what is left of it – has been in a deplorable condition for 20 to 25 years or more ….but it still sits there.

Is the city afraid to contact the owner and present them with a raze order? Seems like this is overdue.
