Lower Common Neighborhood Conservation District Study
On June 28, 2007, the Historical Commission had a public hearing to hear the revised recommendations of the study committee and public testimony was taken. The Historical Commission voted unanimously to accept the revised recommendations of the study committee, as summarized in the staff memorandum of 06/13/07, to suspend the study and not forward the matter to the City Council at the present time, but to keep open the possibility of revisiting the idea in the future, and to direct the staff to continue to make the Study Report available to the public on the city's website. The Commission commended the study committee for their hard work and thanked them for their service and dedication.
Property owners and residents of the neighborhood who want advice or technical support as they begin a renovation, repair, or other construction project are encouraged to contact the staff of the Historical Commission at any point in the future.
