Historic Preservation Funds Grant Process – Mayor Donna Bowen

This month, I would like to give you some information on a program available for historic structures in Jacksonville that is currently in process. Many of you may be unaware of the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF), which is under the aegis of the Historic Architectural Review Commission (HARC), and our City Planner/ Preservation Officer Ian Foster. The HARC protects the preservation and restoration of Jacksonville’s historic tradition by designating and maintaining a Landmark List, by protecting historic sites and structures, and by regulating the design of development activities to enhance the city’s historic tradition and natural features. The HPF is used to fund an annual program, identified as the Historic Preservation Fund Grant. Until August 20, 2021 the window to apply for these matching fund grants for historical structures in Jacksonville was open. I would like to give you a partial overview of the HPF Program and how you might participate in the 2022 Grant cycle. This is a lot of information and might seem daunting, but the Planning Department is experienced in walking you through each step. If you look into this program now, you might consider applying in the future.

Nurturing the seeds of Telluride

It was June 1, 1999. I had a fresh master’s diploma in my pocket, about $62 to my name and wicked sunburn from a backpacking stint in Mexico with my boyfriend, Travis. It had been Trav’s idea for me to apply for a job in Telluride, a town he knew would quench his insatiable ski-thirst and a place I didn’t know (but would quickly discover) would become my creative Shangri-La. We drove down Main Street, ablaze in light like a twinkling toy village, and something in my soul caught fire. Trav and I wanted to stop for a celebratory beer that night, but even the $1 Schlitz at Fat Alley was too steep for us. The next day I’d start my job at the Sheridan Opera House, and the butterflies in my stomach exhilarated my senses. It was the beginning of it all, and it was beautiful.

It won’t be long before, following months of meetings, open houses, surveys and engaged community members casting into the future for the well-used and beloved Telluride Town Park that those plans become tangible.

The purpose of the work session was to supply the project’s applicant, Telluride Parks & Recreation Director Stephanie Jaquet, and master plan consultants and designers Pedro Campos and Tim Losa of Zehren and Associates, with feedback on the proposed new building’s mass and scale, overall building form, and the materials proposed.
