Beaver Dam Now Has Landmark Commission

6/7/11 – The Beaver Dam Common Council last night approved the creation of a Landmark Commission that will oversee future renovation to downtown buildings. The commission will not be able to require existing property owners make changes but will regulate signage, façade and other improvements to make sure the alterations are in compliance with a historic, turn-of-the-century century theme. The commission will be comprised of five members and two alternates who have a background in history, preservation, architecture, real estate law, local government or a related area. The city mayor, building inspector and city attorney will also serve as advisory members.
