Preserving the history of Bodega and Duncans Mills
The Sonoma County Landmark Commission will meet May to discuss the future design of Bodega and Duncan Mills. The towns are under study by Painter Preservation and Planning of Petaluma.
The commission is charged with preserving the architectural and historical integrity of the county’s historic resources. A study of the historic resources is incomplete, according to staffer Lisa Posternak, so the issue may be postponed until a later date.
Draft reports are available from Posternak or online through the Permit and Resource Management Department. They contain a comprehensive history of the towns’ construction, and discussion of how to preserve design elements when reconstruction or new construction is considered.
“The earlier concerned people get involved, the less it costs taxpayers in the long run,” Posternak said.
The meeting is at 5 p.m. May 3 at the Permit and Resource Management Department, 2550 Ventura Ave., Santa Rosa, 565-1900.
