Forming historic district discussed

May 26, 2019

The neighborhood is still unsure about whether or not to apply to be a historic district — that was the consensus from the East Ludington Avenue property owners who attended a meeting Wednesday evening.

About 17 of the estimated 80 property owners met at the Ludington Library to discuss the possibility of a section of East Ludington Avenue applying to join the National Register of Historic Places as a historic district.

Many of the property owners said they might be in favor of the idea, however they wanted more time to verify the facts themselves, discuss the issue with their neighbors and weigh the proposal.

The campaign to create the historic district is led by Ray Madsen, who mailed invitations to all the property owners in the proposed district — East Ludington Avenue from Delia to Staffon streets — although some of the letters were not received.
