That&#39;s the question at hand for the Metro Council&#39;s&nbsp;Planning and Zoning Committee, and they will vote on it this Tuesday. Under the current system, it takes 200 signatures on a petition to get a building declared a historic landmark. The proposed changes would require that 101 of those signatures come from within one mile of the structure, or within the same Council District.</p> Sat, 14 Jul 2012 14:00:00 +0000 Laura Ellis 1006 at http://wfpl.org
