Community Meeting on Nomination to the National Register of Historic Places Meeting Notes

National Historic designation does not restrict property owners in any way or provide any additional restrictions or oversights. National Register designation creates exceptional marketing and promotional opportunities and is a way to raise public awareness about a community’s history.

Information about the National Register of Historic Places may be found on the State Historic Preservation Office’s website here: https://buff.ly/2rCdFSd; and on the National Park Service’s website: https://buff.ly/2Gewu81.
