An important step in Southborough’s effort to adopt a National Historic District is coming up soon.
Members of the the Historical Commission are hoping residents will come out in support of the initiative on November 9th. It’s also a great time to get any questions you have answered.
The Commission has shared an updated map of the proposed district (scroll down) and this invitation:
Save the Date
Come to a public informational meeting on Wednesday November 9, at 7:15 PM at the Town House, and show support (or not) for the proposed Main Street area National Register Historic District in the downtown.
Phil Bergen of the Massachusetts Historical Commission will come to Southborough to give a presentation on the benefits of a National Register Historic District, which essentially imposes no restrictions on property owners. Ask Phil questions, and raise any concerns you have.
The Southborough Historical Commission will also give a presentation on the proposed district. Find out why the Commission believes it’s All Upside – No Upside
See you on November 9th!
Kate Matison, on behalf of the Southborough Historical Commission
If you haven’t been following this, the National Registry doesn’t impose restrictions like local Historic Districts do. You can read more about that difference, here.
The district would cover a portion of Main Street and some adjacent roads. Click on thumbnail right for the updated map.
