Commission eyeing unauthorized changes to historic structures
Published: May 19,2013
GREENVILLE — Historic preservationists are trying to figure out how to keep the owners of historic buildings in Greenville from making unauthorized changes.
The discussion was sparked by the unauthorized removal of the stucco facade of a downtown building earlier this month, the Delta Democat Times reports. Owners didn’t get a city permit or consult the Joint Greenville Washington County Historic Preservation Commission.
The commission was given some control over about 90 properties in September when the City Council approved a historic district. Since then, the commission has been working with city planners department to specify the commission’s authority over changes.
Walley Morse, the liaison between the commission and the state Department of Archives and History, says the commission may send letters to owners advising them to seek permission before changes.
