PHOENIX (AP) - The Phoenix Historic Preservation Office is conducting a post-WWII property survey to identify homes and neighborhoods for the city’s historical register.

Historic preservation officer Elizabeth Wilson told the Arizona Republic (https://goo.gl/DyaLYD) that the survey, which is in its beginning stages, will look at data gathered from the Maricopa County Assessor’s Office.

Wilson said the office is evaluating subdivisions built between 1945 and 1975 within the current city boundaries. At least 50 percent of the single-family houses in the neighborhood must have been built in that time period to qualify.

The city hopes to add neighborhoods to the property register and designate federal funds to rehabilitate homes. The survey also will help the city designate future neighborhoods as they turn 50 years old.
