Historic Preservation Disrict for the Witherspon-Jackson neighborhood

[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.
