HOQUIAM HISTORIC DISTRICT MEETING TONIGHT

March 29, 2012

The City of Hoquiam will hold an informational meeting at City Hall tonight at 6:30 p.m. to inform the public about the creation of a Local Historic District for downtown Hoquiam and what to expect in the coming months. Anyone with information to share with the planning team, or that would just like to learn more, is encouraged to attend the workshop.

“An important part of our ongoing Hometown Hoquiam efforts is to continue to celebrate our history through preservation. This project will ultimately help boost local commerce and tourism,” said Mayor Jack Durney.
In 2009 the City of Hoquiam was awarded a $10,000 grant from the Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation to create the district.

An informational packet will be prepared for property owners later this year with more information about the process.

For more information, contact Alissa Thurman at (360) 637-6011 or athurman@cityofhoquiam.com.

Above, a preliminary map of downtown was developed to aid in the fieldwork in early 2010. As
indicated by the boundaries the initial area was larger than the final recommended historic district.

The map above shows the refined study area in light yellow, and the recommended boundaries of the historic district
and individual properties within it.
