Commission establishing guidelines for historic district
COLUMBUS — The Historic Preservation Commission in Columbus has started the process of setting up legal guidelines for buildings in the historic Southside district of the city.
The commission voted to send a resolution to the City Council. If the council approves it, the commission will gather public input and draft a formal ordinance for the council’s approval.
The Dispatch reports that the area includes an amalgamation of architectural styles dating from the 1830s to World War II, and was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in the early 1980s.
Commission member Joseph Boggess said the plans would not affect changes that have already been made to structures, but future modifications would have to be approved by the commission.
