Downtown landmarks up for debate

The Preservation Commission is scheduled to discuss Tuesday night the possibility of adding more buildings to the over two dozen downtown that already have landmark status.
Here is a map and aerial photo of downtown Evanston showing existing and proposed landmarks with links to an individual photo of each building.
Update 8/16/06: The commission ran out of time at its Tuesday meeting and didn’t discuss the downtown landmarks. It’s scheduled a special meeting on the subject for 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 29, in Room 2403 of the Civic Center.
