City leaders protect historical landmarks

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN)– City commissioners make zoning map amendment to preserve sixteen historic buildings.

A public hearing was held Wednesday night.

Homeowner, Steve Benning thanked commissioners– he’s lived in his home for twenty years.

“It was built in 1872, and we put a lot of blood sweat and tears into it. I think this is a great gesture to help preserve these buildings. Because I’d hate to see any of these historic ones just get torn down.”

“This is actually the start of something really exciting,” said Rachel Bankowitz, a Historic Preservation Planner for the city of Dayton.

City leaders designated sixteen buildings with a HD-3 Historic District Overlay on the City’s zoning map.

It protects the buildings from demolition, meaning owners would have to get council’s permission to tear them down.

The following buildings were recognized on the National Register of Historic Places, and now locally.
