Act now to save the Douglass House
The Planning and Zoning Commission will meet on Monday, August 11. At this meeting, the commissioners will discuss Lou Patel and Jim Rollins' application for a permit to demolish the historic Douglass House. Based on the 4-point guidelines, the same guidelines the Design Review Board used to deny the application for demolition in July, Patel and Rollins do not have just cause for demolishing the Douglass House. If the Planning and Zoning Commission approves the permit for demolition, not only will this mean the loss of another important piece of Macon history, it will also set a dangerous precedent for Macon's historic district.
Take action now! Contact the Macon-Bibb Planning and Zoning Commissioners to let them know you do not support the demolition of the Douglass House. Express your concern about losing another piece of Macon's African American history and how this could endanger other historic structures in the future.
