Historic District Design Guidelines Workshop

The Rose Park and Rose Park South Historic Districts have hundreds of structures that must comply with historic district guidelines. Although many are termed ‘contributing’, that is, it was because that structure represented the time period of the early neighborhood, there are ‘non-contributing’ buildings, as well. Both have to conform to the design guidelines. But the guidelines vary dependent on status. So, make a plan to attend the workshop!

The trees will commemorate women who have broken boundaries and barriers, and 96 recognizes the 96 years since the 19th Amendment when women finally received the right to vote in the United States. Please see commemorative stamp of Frances Willard (below) who the 10th St. Elementary School is named after, and one of the original suffragettes.
