[KHTS] – The building that houses the Newhall Ice Company, one of the Santa Clarita Valley’s oldest businesses, could be up for auction next month if the owners take no action, according to a public foreclosure notice.
Peak Foreclosure Services will hold a public auction at the Pomona Civic Center Plaza on Feb. 13 and 11 a.m. unless owners William and Katherine Pape, who also own Artesia Ice Service, are able to have the sale postponed.
“Said property is being sold for the purpose of paying the obligations secured by said Deed of Trust, including fees and expenses of sale,” according to the public notice. “The total amount of the unpaid principal balance, interest thereon, together with reasonably estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Trustee’s Sale is $52,388.30.”
The Newhall Ice Co. building is currently under the city of Santa Clarita’s historic preservation ordinance, which was adopted in 2008.
It was one of 11 buildings put on a historic preservation list when the city rewrote its ordinance in 2012.
While the ordinance would not protect the Newhall Ice Co., which leases the building, the structure itself is protected regardless of who owns it, said Dave Peterson, assistant planner for the city.
“The building will be under the same historic preservation designation,” he said. “…Any potential changes to the historic nature (are) subject to review by the city.”
The purpose of the ordinance is “to promote the economic and general welfare of the City of Santa Clarita by preserving and protecting public and private historic, cultural and natural resources which are of special historic or aesthetic character or interest, or relocating such resources where necessary for their preservation and for their use, education, and view by the general public,” according to the city’s Municipal Code.
The Newhall Ice Company has been in business since 1906 and moved into their current location in the mid 1920s.
In July 2013, there were reports that the Pape family would sell the Newhall Ice building.
At the time, Newhall Ice employees said that they were unsure whether the new owner would choose to keep them there or if they would have to move to a different location.
