Agenda Item Summary:
The Historic Preservation Commission utilized grant funding from the South Dakota State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) to conduct an architectural survey of the West Boulevard Historic District (District) and surrounding area through contracted services. The survey report found that within the existing District there are 54 structures whose status could change from “non-contributing” to “contributing” and 47 structures that could change from “contributing” to “non-contributing.” The survey report also concludes that several properties not currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places may be eligible for listing, according to their age and architectural integrity. However, the Historic Preservation Commission, Planning Staff, and the SHPO do not recommend pursuing a change or expansion of the District due to lack of interest and support from the neighborhood.
