Placeholder Image
The analysis of the Blue Building is in and McMinnville officials are beginning their review of the report. Unfortunately, the news is not good for a section of the structure.“We need to get that taken care of quickly, as far as not letting anyone near it or around it,” said Vice Mayor Ben Newman, referring to the auditorium. “I think we need to block access to it from inside the building, just in case someone sneaks in; and outside the building, a barrier warning people that it is dangerous.”According to the analysis, “The auditorium is in critical condition and no one should be allowed in or even near the facility.”Newman says the city is now on notice that the auditorium is a hazard.“We don’t need the liability,” he said.
