Landmark proposes reduced sizes for Historic Districts

The Mount Vernon Landmark Commission presented recommendations for reducing the size of three of the four historic districts in the city. The board’s proposal was presented to members of the Mount Vernon City Council at its regular meeting on Monday, May 12.

The proposal was aimed at reducing the number of non-historic houses included in the districts, while still providing protection for the structures that are considered historical and surrounding neighborhoods. There are more than 65 pre-World War II buildings and homes identified in the city. For more details, see the May 15 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
