GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) - The City of Grants Pass is planning to expand its downtown historic district.

The Mail Tribune reports (http://is.gd/oSKggK ) that the plan calls for expanding the district from two blocks to about 15. Officials want to standardize the historic look and streamline exterior remodel approvals.

The city has already filed an amendment to the law, which the Urban Area Planning Commission will review on Jan. 13 before it goes in front of the City Council in February. However, a couple of building and business owners in the expansion zone expressed concern about the changes, saying restrictions on exteriors could turn out to be expensive or decrease property value.
