Preservationist Moves to Take Historic Status Out of Owners' Hands


A Springfield historic preservationist wants to allow the city to give landmark designation to local properties… even against the will of the property owner.

 

Landmark status makes it more difficult to demolish a property… but currently an owner can object to and block that status.

 

Jerry Jacobson with Save Old Springfield says that potentially gives an individual veto power over the community’s desire to preserve historic structures.

 

The city’s Historic Sites Commission is considering that rule change, although the final decision will be up to Springfield aldermen.
