Our View: Rules a necessary part of preservation
Placeholder Image
The majority of the Monroe City Council was right Tuesday to create a historic preservation district and approve the guidelines that go along with it. Even though the wording in some of the guidelines won't allow for a true appeals process, aldermen still will have the ability to rewrite rules it might find to be too restrictive or unnecessary. The council and the Historic Preservation Commission now have the responsibility of closely monitoring the guideline's impacts, and making inevitable changes to them swiftly and fairly.
