Proposal from Bowers Media Group

HLC Staff believes that the HLC revolving fund is a vital component of its activities. The HLC revolving fund is the largest public-funded local historic preservation revolving fund in the United States. It was established in 1991 and has saved more than 50 endangered historic sites in Charlotte-Mecklenburg. HLC Staff believes that a video highlighting the past successes and future possibilities of the revolving fund would be a compelling educational tool. Bruce Bowers is an award-winning videographer who has extensive experience in producing documentaries. HLC Staff believes that he will produce an excellent product.

4. Update on the Status of Former Charlotte Fire Station #10 and the James C. Dowd House

HLC Staff has been contacted by the County and has learned that the appraisal of the property has been secured. The County will be scheduling meetings in the near future to explore preservation options for the property.
