17 masonry buildings need to be retrofitted in down town Gilroy

Retrofit work is being done in the city of Gilroy’s downtown area to prevent the kind of damage seen in the Napa Valley.

A while back, the Gilroy City Council passed a strict ordinance forcing select business owners to retrofit their buildings or face closure and fines. According to the city, 17 masonry buildings need to be retrofitted. Five of those retrofit projects are currently underway, while the other business owners are still trying to figure things out with the city planner.

"I would say the biggest problem that we've had in downtown is just the property owners haven't had the money to do the retrofitting,” said Gary Walton a private developer who owns several buildings in Gilroy.

Walton had one building that needed to be retrofitted, he replaced the brick wall, a falling hazard in the case of an earthquake.  But he said the repairs were minor compared to others. Some retrofits can cost more than the value of the building.
