AGENDA

1.  Consideration of Minutes.  Click Here For Draft Of Minutes.

2.  Director's Report.  Click Here For Director's Report.

3. Consideration of Survey and Research Reports on two properties on Main St. in Pineville.  These reports have not been reviewed by the Survey Committee because of the level of endangerment associated with the buildings.  The Town of Pineville has paid for the reports and is seeking to preserve the historic core of the town.  More reports on buildings in Pineville will be forthcoming.

The Town of Pineville believes that the preservation of the store buildings on Main Street is vital if the Town is to retain its distinctive character.  The Commission staff believes that some of the buildings on the south side of Main Street do possess individual significance and do qualify for historic landmark designation.  The prospect of future local historic district designation of the entire streetscape will be considered by the Town at a future date.
