Mississippi Landmark Public Notices: June 2019

Here are the public notices on the MDAH website related to Mississippi Landmarks. I’ve taken the liberty of adding Google streetview so we can all see which building is under consideration for designation (or under consideration for de-designation, as the case may be).

In accordance with the Policies for the Implementation of the Antiquities Law of Mississippi, the Board of Trustees of the Mississippi Department of Archives and History invites public comment on the following proposed projects or designations for a period of thirty (30) days following the publication of the notice. After the conclusion of the public comment period, the proposed project or designation will be placed on the Board agenda for action at the ensuring quarterly meeting. If expeditious action is required for contractual, security, or economic reasons, the Board may place the project or designation on the agenda of the next regularly scheduled monthly teleconference.
