LaFayette Historic Preservation Meeting March 8

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

LaFayette Historic Preservation Commission will host a town hall meeting on the proposed historic business district in downtown LaFayette on Thursday, March 8, at 8 a.m. at the Bank of LaFayette Community Room.

HPC members hope that building and business owners who could not attend the previous evening meeting will be able to attend this morning meeting.  LaFayette Wal-mart Supercenter will provide breakfast snacks.

Based on feedback at the January town hall meeting, the HPC would like to proceed with presenting the historic district designation proposal to the city council in April, but to table the proposed design guidelines until a later date.

Before the meeting, volunteers will distribute information on tax incentives, alternative building codes for designated historic buildings or buildings that are contributing within a designated historic district, and compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, or ADA, to business and building owners in the proposed district.

For more information, please, call (706) 639-1519.

Tom Dugan Was A Good Man
