Nerds, maybe, but nerds with foresight. The Alamo in San Antonio, George Washington's home, Mt. Vernon, in Virginia, and Keystone Heritage Park in El Paso would have been demolished without history nerds. The neighborhood slated for demolition may not be on the level of major historic attractions, but you are right that the City should have given the "historic people" a heads-up. Jim Tolbert claimed he was a proponent of historic preservation when he ran for office, but even he couldn't be bothered to inform the historic commission or county historic society about what the city was considering. Five days between the announcement and vote? That has "We're the City and we don't care what you think" flashing in neon all over it.
