Historic Preservation

In case you tried to visit the Bookmobile yesterday…they packed up early due to lightning.  They will be back in the library parking lot Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6-8.

Our current forecast calls for cool, rainy weather through Wednesday.  If you’ve done some early gardening, this should help establish the young plants.

The Historic Preservation Board meets tonight at 6:30 in City Council Chambers.  They will be considering two “Certificates of Appropriateness” for building changes or additions.  Woody’s Pizza plans to make make some changes to a small building that stands behind Bent Gate.  They want to use the structure as a prep kitchen.  The owners of 1107 11th Street want to build a detached garage on the back of their property.  This home is considered a “contributing structure” to the 12th Street Historic District.  Details and drawings are available online.  The meeting will be broadcast live through the City website.
