Apple CEO Steve Jobs was given the go-ahead from local officials yesterday to demolish a historic house on his property in Woodside, CA. “Jobs, who owns an expansive Mission Revival home designed by the late, internationally known architect George Washington Smith, was battling with preservationists, who sought to keep the home intact,” reports CNET “The building had fallen into severe disrepair over the years. The Woodside Town Council held a public hearing Tuesday night to consider the preservationists’ appeal of an earlier decision by the town’s planning commission in June. In that decision, the commission, noting there were no historic preservation ordinances on its books, approved the demolition, providing certain contingences were met.”
