Report: $20,000 Grant to Help Identify Historical Properties

 

The City of Meriden is looking to hire a consultant to conduct a survey of the city's historical downtown properties, according to the Record Journal.

The survey will be paid for through a $20,000 grant awarded by the Department of Economic and Community Development.

“If you take a walking tour and take more time to look at the architecture, it can be quite extraordinary,” Mayor Michael Rohde told the newspaper.

Owners of the properties may be eligible for tax credits, or state and federal grant monies, the report says.

The results of the survey will include a public presentation of the findings.
