Description

One of the Beaver Hills neighborhood gateway brick piers has been toppled over, presumably by accident by one of the machines/vehicles milling the street the week of July 4th, 2018. While the pier is located on private property, I suspect that it is the City's responsibility to repair the pier in this instance since it likely resulted from their road milling efforts. [EDIT: Apparently, the brick pier was damaged in a car accident. Would it then be up to the property owner of 590 Winthrop Avenue to pursue property damages from the vehicle operator who was at fault?]

The brick piers are an important component of the Beaver Hills Historic District, which is registered on the National Register of Historic Districts. 590 Winthrop Avenue, the property the pier is located on, is a contributing structure to the historic district.
