Asbestos removal got under way Monday at 1202 E. Ojai Ave., and while the ultimate fate of the old bowling alley remains unclear, at least one area business has expressed interest in buying the property.
“We’re moving ahead; we’ve got to finish the asbestos abatement,” Doug LaBarre said Tuesday. “But in the meantime, if someone wants to do something with the building, why demolish it?”
