A public presentation will reveal the findings of an online survey that evaluated the Ludington area community’s interest in historic preservation.

The presentation will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 26 at the performance hall in the Ludington Area Center for the Arts, 107 S. Harrison St.

“Join us for an evening discussing the opportunities for preservation, placemaking and economic development in the City of Ludington,” stated a press release from Mallory Bower of the Michigan Historic Preservation Network (MHPN).

The online survey opened May 13 and closes on Monday. So far, more than 150 forms have been submitted. The survey is designed to “capture the perception of historic preservation in the present and thoughts for the future,” according to Bower.

The survey is part of a community assessment program of the MHPN that the City of Ludington applied for and was selected to complete.

“The assessment is intended to provide the community with a snapshot of their current historic preservation ethic and efforts and create a blueprint of recommendations and resources for advancing historic preservation in the community,” stated Bower.

The assessment is an initiative of the MHPN, with funding and support from the Michigan State Housing Development Authority and the State Historic Preservation Office.
