Officials with a group formed to find a way to demolish the old, abandoned Polaris Hotel in Downtown Fairbanks say they’ve come up with a way to finally accomplish that goal. Organizers say they’ve raised more than half of the amount of money they need to carry out a plan to foreclose on the property so they can knock down the crumbling, contaminated building.
