The Bedford Historic District is so close to getting landmarked we can almost taste it! On Tuesday, Jan. 15, the Landmarks Preservation Commission will hold a public hearing on the proposed district. Here’s the LPC agenda for that date. The LPC voted to calendar the district over the summer after years of community outreach and support. Once landmarked, more than 600 Renaissance, Greek Revival and Queen Anne townhouses will be protected in the neighborhood. Update: we previously reported this would be a second public hearing, this is actually the first hearing the LPC is holding for this particular district.
