The Langston Civic Association's request to delay a vote on the Proposed Kingman Park Historic District application was successful. A vote on the application has now been rescheduled for January 25, 2018 in order to allow more time for resident input.
The primary reason that the Langston Civic Association became involved in delaying a hearing on this matter is because members of our community have complained of not receiving appropriate notice of this potential designation or being given the opportunity for feedback by those who submitted the application.
Thanks to our requests, the Office of Planning will be delaying a hearing on this application until next year and using the time before that to host a variety of events in our area aimed at educating residents about historic districts in general as well as this specific application.
