Certificate of Appropriateness for Steps at 302 Division St S. - Fire Station and City Hall.

Action Requested:
The Heritage Preservation Commission is asked to approve a Certificate of Appropriateness (HPC Resolution 2023-005) for a step and handrail at 302 Division St S. - Fire Station and City Hall Building.
