Court Denies Request to Stop Relocation of Kent Wells Sherman House
Magistrate issued order this week in case
A Portage County magistrate has issued an order denying a request from a group of Kent residents to stop the relocation of the historic Kent Wells Sherman House to a vacant lot at 247 N. Water St.
Portage magistrate Kent Graham issued the ruling this week, which denies the request of members of the group Save the Standing Rock Garden for a preliminary injunction to stop placement of the house on the lot.
"The motion for a preliminary injunction ... prohibiting (Kent) Wells Sherman House, Inc., from disturbing or removing trees, plants, and soils, making any excavation, and placing structures or equipment on its property located at 247 N. Water St. ... is denied," the magistrate's ruling reads in part.
