A developer took a plan before the Byron Municipal Advisory Council last week to stabilize the Byron Hot Springs building in anticipation of one day developing the property.

Local gossip wheels began spinning last week when an application for the Byron Hot Springs building went before the Byron Municipal Advisory Council for approval for some repairs.

“This is not a development plan, just a simple proposal to stabilize the building,” said Robert Cort, whose mother, Vera Cort, owns the property. “As time is going on, the building is out there, little pieces are falling down. It’s decrepit, people are going out and vandalizing it, shooting it, at a high rate … if we are ever going to do anything with this property, we minimally have to apply for some foundation work to make it so the building stops falling down.”

Cort said he is concerned that if work isn’t done soon to save the foundation, there won’t be a building left to save. He said he doesn’t know what the building will eventually be developed as.
