Owners of a Lyman Street property are seeking to demolish the building, but have to get permission from the Holyoke Historical Commission first.

A demolition permit is being sought for a dilapidated home 246 Layman St., in Holyoke. The 960-square-foot dwelling is valued at around $99,000, according to Zillow. It was built in 1900, making it an antique.

The Historical Commission will hold a public hearing, Monday, Aug. 10, at 6:30 p.m., to consider an application by OneHolyoke Community Development Corp., to raze the current building on the property. 

The CDC has been renovating and demolishing rundown buildings in Holyoke since the 1970s. Just on Lyman Street, the CDC has demolished several buildings and installed off-street parking for residents, according to the CDC's website.

OneHolyoke has built or renovated 160 homes in Holyoke since its inception in 1975, the CDC said.
