Important Community Meeting on Landmarking, Wed, 10/29

There's an important community meeting on landmarking coming up. The Study Committee is giving a final presentation of the proposed Landmark District for our neighborhood before the hearing on November 10th, 2008. It defines a set of boundaries in Fort Point which will receive the Landmark designation as well as a set of guidelines for how development of these buildings need to be handled. This is a critical step to preserving the history and character of our neighborhood.
