There are a lot of factors that come into play when it comes to demolishing buildings. An early determination to decipher is the age of the building and any historic events that may have occurred in or around the building. These two factors deal primarily with historic preservation and in some cases future planning. Historic events that occurred in a community's local building can have national coverage if deemed newsworthy. For example, if a small town building held a presidential meeting in 1890 it is very likely to be held historic. This historic classification can then hopefully bring in national coverage and hopefully money for there local economy. Building demolition is a careful process that should not be thought of lightly. Another thing to consider is asbestos. That is a topic that does not need any more discussion when land development and land planning is involved. There are many other factors to consider when building demolition is involved. The main consideration is to gather the advice and support of the community, city, or county. Political backing will always be an important factor, so do not underestimate your constituents.
