Once again the landowners of Gloucester are having their rights jeopardized. The new Cultural Historic Resource Ordinance which is being proposed, if passed, will leave it to the county’s discretion whether your property will be placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
If this happens, your property will then be under the Historic Planning Committee’s rule. You, the landowner, the party responsible for the taxes and upkeep of the property, will have no say. You will have to get permission to make any and all changes to your own property.
In an effort to be "transparent and open" with the citizens of Gloucester County, the meeting to discuss this ordinance is going to be held on Monday, March 26 at 1 p.m. (DIT conference room, 6382 Main Street). If at all possible, the landowners in Gloucester need to attend this meeting, if for no other reason to show the county that we are interested in what they are doing.
