>> REVISED DRAFT OUTLINE for a Potential Candler Park Historic District
The Candler Park Historic Designation Committee will present this outline at the October CPNO meeting and ask for a “Vote of Confidence” at the November CPNO meeting. This vote is NOT to approve a final Local Historic District Designation but is a vote to proceed with the process of community engagement to draft regulations that we, Candler Park, would like for our neighborhood. Aaron Fortner of Canvas Planning Group will lead this process and help us draft the regulations. We will also need to raise funds to pay for his services. Another vote will take place AFTER Candler Park drafts its proposed Local Historic District regulations.
Draft Outline document text only continues below after the drop...

Come out this Sunday, June 26, from 12-3, to the NeighborFest in front of the Neighborhood Church on McLendon. We will have a table along with the CPNO Infrastructure Committee (McLendon "Safe Street" initiative) to help spread the word about these community projects and accept your questions and input.
It sounds like there will be lots of other fun "community, justice, and faith"-based activities and participants. We can't wait to see you there!
164 neighbors participated in the committee survey and shared their opinions on Candler Park's architecture, support and concerns about a potential historic district. See the Summary of Results.
