City Attorney Jeff Todd is current- ly writing the ordinance. Expectations are that LaGrange will soon have a his- toric preservation ordinance and a new historic district. A historic preservation will be appointed by City Council. Several people have played central roles iff this process, including Betty Fagundes, Main Street Manager for LaGrange; Speer Burdette, chair of the Downtown Development Authority (DDA); Charles Hudson, Board member of DDA and the Troup County Historical Society; and Kaye L. Minchew, Director of the Archives. Many other Historical S 0ciet y. membr pints down- town merchants and property owners turned out for a public hearing on March 2 expressing their support. The ordinance and district were recommend- ed by the Troup County Historical Society, the Downtown Development Authority, and the LaGrange Merchants Association.
