LACEY TO UPDATE ITS HISTORIC PROPERTIES INVENTORY
LACEY, WA, March 16, 2011: The City of Lacey will conduct a historic properties survey (reconnaissance level) of post-WWII residential properties that are at least forty-five years old. This update to Lacey’s official Inventory of Historic Properties is made possible by an $8,000 grant from the Washington State Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation.
To conduct this historic properties survey, the City of Lacey retained JBR Environmental Consultants, Inc. (JBR) to identify properties with distinctive architectural characteristics, or properties associated with persons or events significant to the local history.
Beginning March 21, 2011, and ending April 1, 2011, JBR will collect data that will be used to determine eligible properties of historical significance. The process for collecting data includes note taking, photography, and visual observations made from city streets and sidewalks.
The City of Lacey will notify property owners if their home qualifies for inclusion on the historic inventory. Homes included in Lacey’s Inventory of Historic Properties are also eligible for the historic places register; Lacey’s Register of Historic Places is a voluntary program.
The public is invited to attend the Lacey Historical Commission meeting on Monday, April 4, 2011, at 6:00 p.m. at Lacey City Hall - Council Chambers, 420 College St. SE, to learn more about the Lacey Register of Historic Places. For more information, please call Lacey Museum Curator Amber Raney at (360) 438-0209.
