P-B Dialogues: Heritage Preservation officials on panel Wednesday
Last year, the city of Rochester created a Heritage Preservation Commission to identify historic properties in the city that would be recommended for protection as Heritage Preservation sites.
The commission got down to business last summer. What has it accomplished since then and how effective is it likely to be in helping to preserve historic landmarks in Rochester?
That's the topic of the first Post-Bulletin Dialogues meeting of the year, at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Rochester Public Library auditorium. The event was rescheduled last week due to bad weather.
Joining Managing Editor Jay Furst in the discussion will be Jeff Allman, commission chairman and a Rochester developer; Randy Staver, Rochester City Council president; Kevin Lund, a longtime advocate for historic preservation and an Olmsted County judge; Matt Limoges, of Rochester Area Builders Inc.; and Beth Rutledge, of the Preservation Alliance of Minnesota.
P-B Dialogues meetings are free, open to the public and all about audience participation. After brief opening comments, the meeting is all Q & A with the audience, giving you a chance to talk directly with newsmakers and local leaders.
