On June 22, 2011, the Landmarks Preservation Commission voted to table the proposal for an Old Town Historic District, due to lack of property owner support.  The Commission made this decision based on written and oral comments, petitions and a property owner opinion survey conducted by the City.


On September 15, 2009, residents of the “Old Town” Neighborhood submitted a written request for consideration of the neighborhood as a historic special review district overlay zone.  

The proposed area extends roughly from N 31st Street, south along N Junett Street to North 29th Street, west to N Carr Street, south along Carr Street (including both sides of Carr) to Yakima.  The southern boundary continues west along Tacoma Avenue N to North 11th Street, and then returns north to North 30th Street.  

The nomination specifically excludes the business district and C2 commercial zone from inclusion in the district.
