Why did the City initiate this program?
The City and Historic Review Board believe there should be more incentives for owners of historically significant properties. This program will award cash to property owners that can be used to improve and/or repair their historic structure. Not only will this program help to improve the City’s existing historic structures, but it will hopefully encourage others to consider listing their property as a historic resource so that they can be eligible to participate.
