Historic Preservation Program

Below are two PDF files that, together, make Naples’ first historic preservation program!  The total page count is 212, so we appreciate your printing a copy for your reading pleasure and perusal. 

This project will undergo formal review before Naples City Council – the first hearing is scheduled for November 1, 2017.  Thank you for your support! 

Questions or comments are welcome; call Elaine Reed at 239-261-8164 or write EReed@NaplesHistoricalSociety.org
