A historic water tower is Frisco, Texas, faces demolition within the next 30 days, a report by NBC 5 Dallas-Forth Worth says. The water tower has been a Frisco fixture for more than 50 years.

Mayor Jeff Cheney says in the report that the city is looking to beautify the Preston Road Corridor where the water tower sits, calling it a “major gateway through [the] community.”

The water tank was built in the 1960s and hasn’t been used since the 1990s. Officials are currently discussing putting parts of the tank into a historical museum.

A Frisco City Council member suggested placing a historical market in the area after the demolition during the meeting held to approve the work.
