Belleville, IL ( KTRS ) A historic downtown Belleville building is scheduled for demolition as part of a renovation to improve public access to City Hall.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports the former Security Abstract and Title Company building is scheduled to be torn down as part of an $18.5 million project. The fixes include upgrades to the adjacent City Hall under the federal Americans with Disabilities Act.

The 86-year-old building is home to the Belleville Police Department, which is moving to another downtown location next year.

Belleville plans to install a wheelchair ramp and accessible parking in the building’s place. City officials are also meeting with local preservationists who want to preserve Belleville’s historic character.
