The City’s planning department in cooperation with its Landmarks and Heritage Advisory Board recently contracted with Northwest Vernacular, Inc. to conduct a reconnaissance-level historic property survey in the city’s Oak Park neighborhood and host a public outreach workshop on historic preservation.
The purpose is to document properties that are 50 years old or older, as observed from the public right-of-way. Information to be recorded includes: building type, physical description, and architectural style.
As part of the survey, Northwest Vernacular will be photographing and documenting the Oak Park neighborhood on Feb. 13, 2019.
A public meeting will be held Thursday, Feb. 28, 2019 at 6 p.m. at Lakewood City Hall, 6000 Main Street SW, to outline the specifics of this level of survey and how the information is valuable to the City.
Please come to this meeting if you have information to share about the Oak Park neighborhood, or with any questions you may have about historic property surveys and historic preservation activities in the city of Lakewood.
The City received a grant from the state Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation to conduct this survey and host this workshop. Questions? Please contact Courtney Brunell, Planning Manager, at email@example.com or 253-983-7839.
