Comments are requested from those “who live, work, shop and eat” in the district. Those interested in completing the survey can do so through the city’s website. The deadline is Dec. 31.
Comments are being collected for the state Department of Community Affairs, which designated the city in the Neighborhood Preservation Program in October. A $125,000 grant for Bayfront Historic District improvements was included in the initial designation for economic development.
