The Delray Beach City Commission moved closer in March to changing the name of the Nassau Street Historic District, adding properties to the district and expanding its period of significance.
A resurvey report before the commission recommended correcting the name to the Nassau Park Historic District and expanding its historic period of significance to 1935-1964 from the previous 1935-1943. Five properties would be added to the district, which includes lots on Nassau Street between A1A and Venetian Drive. The resurvey report also recommended that an application be submitted to the National Register of Historic Places for the district.
The commission passed an ordinance accepting the report by RJ Heisenbottle Architects Inc. on first reading at the March 17 meeting. A second public hearing is planned at 7 p.m. April 7.
