The National Park Service announced on June 22, 2016 that Sedalia has just become the newest “Certified Local Government” in the State of Missouri. A Certified Local Government (CLG) is one that has been determined to have made a commitment to historic preservation. That commitment is evidenced in the City’s adoption of a preservation ordinance and designating a Sedalia Historic Preservation Commission.
With certification in place, it is now the responsibility of the preservation commission to engage the Sedalia community in developing an official Preservation Plan to be considered by the City Council for adoption. The commission invites you to participate in a Public Preservation Forum on Wednesday, July 20, 2016, from 6-8 p.m. in the Council Chambers of the Sedalia Municipal Building, 200 South Osage.
The forum will include a brief presentation on the planning process, followed by exercises to involve you in collecting information about your personal priorities and preferences in identifying and protecting our local historic landmarks, properties, neighborhoods, and districts. It is very important that each local preservation plan mirrors the vision and goals of the community and we look forward to public participation.
