MARION — The Marion Village Historic District Study Committee will hold a public meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. at the Marion Music Hall to explain the Committee’s progress since being formed last winter.

Preservation consultant Eric Dray will present a brief history of Marion Village and its architectural styles — a village which he believes is “the most intact historic town center on the South Coast.”

He will explain how the area’s historical development informed the proposed district boundaries, how the historic district process would benefit Marion, and how a design review process might look for the town.

There will be an open floor for questions. Study Committee Chair Will Tifft will also present the results of the survey sent to property owners in June. The results of that survey have guided the Committee in its selection of a design review process that focuses on demolition, new construction and new additions. Routine maintenance, replacement-in-kind and minor alterations would in most cases be excluded from review.
