Will Belleville get a new historic district?

A presentation about the proposed Downtown Belleville Northwest National Register Historic District is scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday at City Hall.

The proposed district is generally bounded by Illinois Street on the east, Third Street on the west, West C Street on the north and West Washington Street on the south.

The district, if approved, would allow property owners to apply for federal historic tax credits.

The meeting will be in the City Council chambers at 101 S. Illinois St.
