Historic Designations Protect & Acknowledge
We plan to submit nominations for City, State and National designations of local deserving properties when requested by a property owner. This is a time consuming process that requires a significant amount of research and document preparation. If volunteers are not available to complete these packages, we will pay for nominations to be completed. We welcome volunteers or financial support for these projects. Our more urgent nominations will be to support owners who feel their properties are endangered by gentrification or potential demolition. City designation is the only designation that saves a property from potential demolition. – $4000
Support the Friends of Henry O. Tanner House – This house was endangered of potential demolition. The friends raised the initial $70000 for immediate limited stabilization. However, the longer term goals of $300,000 – $500000 in funds is still needed to stabilize the property and purchase the property located at 2908 W. Diamond St. donate directly to them at www.savethetannerhouse.org
