Peavey Plaza on National Registry

It looks like the federal government and national historic preservation experts may be more in line with our own Minneapolis Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) than the City Council is.

This week MPR reported that the federal government has listed Peavey Plaza on the National Register of Historic Places. When this came before the Council last year, I was the only council member who voted in support of the recommendation of our HPC to preserve the plaza, at least until after a formal study of its historical significance was completed.
