Endangered Historic Landmarks

The County has asked the Historic Landmarks Commission to submt a list of projects it intends to undertake between June 2018 and July 2019.  Consulting with Len Norman, I thought a logical place to begin would be to list what I believe are the most endangered properties that have been designated as historic landmarks.  This is my list.  There is $3.8 million in the HLC Revolving Fund.  Projects could include securing options to purchase, buy and flip, or full or partial restoration.
