Dusting off that front porch? Thinking of some repair or restoration?

Some residents are asking about the ‘rules’ of restoration and others are interested in some financial support. Great questions!!! Both are critical for us in Rose Park Neighborhood.

We have two, count ’em two, historic districts. Our preservation page has just been updated with the ‘go to’ info needed to begin. AND for those who want a starting list of preservation sensitive craftspeople here is the current directory organized by LB Heritage.Resources Spreadsheet Final_11-16


Historic District Guidelines for RP and RPS historic districts are up for adoption

Supporting and maintaining the quality of life in our neighborhood is helped by our preservation guidelines. Without the guidelines we’d have a loss of the very fabric that makes the RPN!

A great deal of work has gone into the guidelines to make them meaningful, understandable and worthy of preservation. Be familiar with them – and if you have questions or concerns – this is the time to address them. These guidelines which include the specific guidelines for RP and RPS historic districts are up for adoption Aug. 14th.

These design guidelines are coming back to the Cultural Heritage Commission (CHC) for adoption at its August 14, 2017 meeting.  The community is encouraged to take the time to review the revised drafts between now and August 14, at which time the Cultural Heritage Commission will consider a motion to adopt the Guidelines for these eight districts. Chapters 1, 2, and Architectural Style Guides for Craftsman and Spanish Colonial Revival are being considered for adoption as well.

Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
