Mason City, IA – On Wednesday, August 8, 2012, the City of Mason City’s Growth Development and Planning Department and Summit Envirosolutions will team up for a neighborhood meeting to discuss the upcoming historic building survey and National Register of Historic Places nomination project in the Forest Park and Wildwood neighborhoods in Mason City. The meeting will be held in the 2nd floor Conference Room of City Hall and begins at 6:30 PM.

At the meeting, neighborhood residents will learn more about this project; the work plan for the survey and nomination; the National Register nomination process; and the benefits of being in a National Register of Historic Places district. Residents in the study area are encouraged to bring any historical information they may have about the development of the Forest Park and Wildwood neighborhoods. Photos are especially appreciated! Residents who are unable to attend the meeting but have historical resources such as photographs or documents that may contribute to this project should contact the Growth Development & Planning Department.
