Phoenix HP Officer provides update to city's Arts, Culture & Historic Preservation Subcommittee

[Source: Barbara Stocklin, City of Phoenix] -- Historic Preservation staff presented two items to the City Council ACHP Subcommittee. The first item was an overview of the three ethnic heritage historic property surveys recently completed by the HP Office. The second item was an update on the HP Office's efforts to list the 35 city designated residential historic districts on the National Register of Historic Places. Currently, only 21 of the districts are listed on the National Register, but two districts have nominations already in progress, and ten more will be the subject of a city RFQ that will be issued in November. By 2009, 33 of the 35 districts should be listed, with the two remaining districts scheduled for listing in 2011.
