Munjoy Hill Historic District Analysis
STATUS OF MUNJOY HILL HISTORIC DISTRICT PROPOSAL
Planning Board Vote Postponed
On Tuesday, March 10th the Planning Board held a formal public hearing on the Historic Preservation Board's recommendation to designate a Munjoy Hill Historic District. Following three hours of public testimony, the Board tabled final deliberations and a formal vote on the matter until its next meeting (originally scheduled for March 19th). Due to the recent closure of City Hall, a new date for the Planning Board's deliberations and vote has not yet been set. As the public hearing was closed on March 10th, no additional public testimony will be taken when the Planning Board reconvenes. This web page will be updated once a date has been set.
The Planning Board's role in historic district deliberations is to forward a recommendation to the City Council based on findings as to whether the proposed district meets the historic preservation ordinance's designation criteria and evaluation of the effect of designation on other Comprehensive Plan goals. Only the council has the authority to designate local landmarks and historic districts. A date has not yet been set for the Council's review.
Written comments should be submitted to email@example.com.
Please be advised that all protections of the historic preservation ordinance are now in effect within the proposed historic district until such time the City Council makes a final decision on the recommended designation. In other words, historic preservation review is required for any proposed alteration, addition, demolition and/or new construction within the proposed district boundaries or affecting the individual structures recommended for landmark designation.
