Alexander Road will be removed by the Downing Construction Company of
The house, which was vacated last year after being deemed
unsafe, will be moved from the North McLean Road site by Darrell Downing's

The McLean property is located on a part of the 38 acres of
Port property which Port commissioners hope will soon be annexed into the city
limits, Hansen added.
