City Council Meeting 02/25/20
Reviewing the HPC's ruling to designate the Circle Church as NOT a historic landmark
The city council meeting ended with a vote of 6-0 in favor of the original decision of the Historic Preservation Commission. This deems the Circle Church not a historic landmark.
However, we recieved a lot of support from members of our community, local historians, and even members of the city council. All sharing a desire to want to save the church and the want to recognize it as not only a historic landmark, but a staple and community amenity.
The take away for us- more community members are interested in the historic value of this space, and there is so much more about this land that we have merely scratched the surface of.
The fight is not yet over, it has simply just begun!
