DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — A former hotel in Springfield that was supposed to house the homeless will soon be demolished.

The City of Springfield purchased the Villager Inn on West North Street for $1.7 million dollars back in December of 2022.

However, a memo from the city manager says that after a water main break, vandalism and a recent fire on Tuesday, the building is no longer safe.

The city commission has voted to not move forward with renovation efforts.

The demolition of the Villager Inn property is set to commence immediately.
