Cuyler-Brownville Historic Building Maps Update

Cuyler-Brownville Chart Between 2018 and 2020, an in-depth survey of the Cuyler-Brownville neighborhood was performed to identify buildings that were constructed between 1867 and 1938 and that contribute to the character of the area. Previous surveys have take place in the neighborhood, resulting in the 671 buildings that are currently listed as historic (also known as contributing). However, many buildings have been overlooked or left out in the past; 90 buildings have been identified and are proposed to be added as contributing to the Historic Buildings Map (See map). If you’d like to find out more, please attend the April 27th MPC Meeting at 1:30pm. This presentation will be at the end of the meeting. Use this link to register for our virtual meeting.
