Brownsville nearing completion of Historic District Guidelines
The public is invited to a meeting Thursday at City Hall at which Historic Planners will discuss Commercial Guidelines for the downtown area.
The committee has been crafting the work for months. The rules will govern how downtown property owners must maintain their buildings.
City Hall has circulated among downtown business and property owners a draft of rules that “apply to commercial buildings, structures, signage and landscapes in the historic district.”
“Of primary importance in the approach of design guidelines in the emphasis on preservation over replacement. The frequent use of terms such as retain, maintain, and preserve demonstrates this emphasis,” the document states.
The meeting begins at 4pm at City Hall.
