[updated] The council has introduced the ordinance to create the Witherspoon historic district. The Wise report recommending the ordinance can be downloaded as pdf here. The Commission has also set up a website for Princeton’s Historic Resources
I voted to introduce the ordinance, and I plan to support it at the final hearing on April 11. Historic preservation has benefited the community in several other neighborhoods and historic sites, and I believe it’s time to do the same for the Witherspoon-Jackson neighborhood, with its old-fashioned streetscape of porches and stoops that create a friendly, charming neighborhood. I look forward to hearing from residents.
