Homewood agrees to buy Ridge Road building — briefly

Homewood took another step in laying the groundwork for a major downtown redevelopment project Tuesday when the Board of Trustees agreed to purchase the old Funk Hall building at 2049-2051 Ridge Road. The village will not own the building long, however. It has an agreement to sell the building to Third Coast Developers. [Correction added Oct. 3]
