Public Comments Being Accepted for Warm Mineral Springs Park Buildings National Register of Historic Places Nomination
As part of the Warm Mineral Springs Park Master Plan process, City staff worked with Kimley-Horn & Associates and Lorrie Muldowney, President of Creative Preservation, LLC., to submit a nomination in November 2018 to add the park’s three existing buildings to the National Register of Historic Places on behalf of the City of North Port. The Springs itself was added to the National Register in 1977.
The Division of Historical Resources - Florida National Register Review Board held a hearing for this nomination on May 23 and voted unanimously to forward the nomination of the Warm Mineral Springs Park Buildings to the National Park Service for consideration. The City has been advised that public comments regarding the nomination will be accepted by the National Park Service through the end of July. Comments and letters previously submitted to the Division of Historical Resources will already be included with the materials sent to the National Park Service. All comments can be sent to the following address:
National Register of Historic Places
Mail Stop 7228
1849 C Street, NW
Washington, DC 20240
Once the Keeper of the National Register receives the nomination, that office will have forty-five days in which to approve or disapprove the nomination. The City expects to have the final response later this summer.
