Historic District Expansion Under Consideration
During this evening’s Historic Preservation Board meeting Dr. Steven Mehls provided an update regarding the current historic district status. He shared buildings which now qualify for being “historic” which previously did not qualify because they were not yet considered old enough. However, at this time they can now be seen as prospects for the National Register.
Those who are on this list could then potentially receive tax credits and buildings in the district must then align with the 7 aspects of integrity. Expansion of the district will provide the opportunity to more buildings if the proposed resolution passes.
ASPECTS OF INTEGRITY:
NEXT STEPS: July 11th the final public hearing regarding the district update will take place during the committee meeting. Then they will seek City Council approval by August 14th and post approval will be responsible for conducting property owner notifications during the month of September.
