The club with no members anymore but with a building owned is having a meeting Tuesday to try and get enough former members to devise a plan for disposition of the Mill Street building that housed the North Side League for decades. This is a hard lead to write and make sense.
Too bad the meeting can't be at the League, but no one has the keys and no one is sure if they can go inside without trespassing on property that is abandoned.
It's all very hard to explain, especially when media reports on the League like it's still there.
If nothing is done, local developer Brian Murray will acquire the property through tax sale. Redeeming the taxes would cost around $30K and can be done by the League or by someone on behalf of the League. Who would do that ? And then you'd still have to have a mechanism to convey ownership.....and for what purpose ?
There is talk of another organization being interested in the building for an NFP, but none of that has been made public. \
Meanwhile the clock ticks.
Three or four years back, a dedicated northsider paid the taxes, and that kept the lingering going on for longer.
