Apalachicola School of Art Hosts Certified Local Government Workshop


The Apalachicola School of Arts will host a Certified Local Government Workshop (CLG) at 6:00 pm Tuesday, Jan. 13 inside the Battery Park Community Center located at 1 Bay Ave in Apalachicola.

Michael Zimny, with the Florida Division of Historical Resources, Bureau of Historic Preservation is the director of the CLG Program and will be facilitating the workshop on the benefits of a Certified Local Government Program designation.

The CLG Program links three levels of government; federal, state and local into a preservation partnership for the identification, evaluation and protection of historic properties and communities. Designation as a certified local government makes historic preservation a public policy through passage of a historic preservation ordinance.
