The Liberty City Council approved a contract with Heritage Strategies, LLC, on January 27 to undertake a historic preservation plan that will ultimately become a part of the City’s Comprehensive Plan. The survey is just one facet of efforts to develop historic preservation goals and objectives and a path for implementation. The project is made possible with a $25,000 federal grant.
Initial plans included hosting several public meetings to gain input from Liberty stakeholders on historic preservation issues in the community. When COVID-19 put a stop to those plans, staff and Heritage Strategies shifted gears, conducting phone interviews with key stakeholders and developing a survey to gain wider community input. The survey, which will be open until July 15, is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LibertyHP-posts.
