Park said she was concerned that the home would be demolished without any public input or consideration of its historical significance.

The motion calls for the city to initiate a process to designate the home as a historic-cultural monument.

The owner of the home, the Glory of the Snow Trust, has not yet commented on the City Council's decision.

The reprieve is temporary, and the home could still be demolished if the city's Historic-Cultural Monument Commission ultimately decides not to designate it as a historic monument.

The decision to grant the reprieve is a victory for preservationists, who have been fighting to save the home for years.
