Palouse St. Elmo building lacks structural integrity

Building does not have adequate seismic resistance

PALOUSE - The City of Palouse met with citizens Thursday, March 7, at the Community Center to discuss updates to the St. Elmo Building project, with the unfortunate news that the building's structure is not salvageable.

Haley and Aldrich, an environmental and geotechnical engineering consultant group from Spokane were present at the meeting to give updates on the building's structural integrity.

According to Haley and Aldrich's technical memorandum, St. Elmo's building does not have adequate structure to resist seismic forces, and has several severe seismic deficiencies with the structure.
