By way of the Dixon Historic Preservation Commission, roughly 30 properties, mostly clustered downtown, soon will be commemorated with bronze plaques bearing a brief history of the structure.

City Hall — among the historical sites recognized — posted its plaque Monday.

This was a $16,000 project commissioned by the previous administration. A survey was conducted last summer, and owners should have received a letter from previous Mayor Jim Burke stating their properties were eligible.

Property owners who want them won’t have to pay for them, just ensure they will install them, Interim City Manager David Nord said.

“What’s going to be done shortly is a letter from the city saying that if property owners are willing to install [the plaque], we will happily turn the plaque over to have it installed,” Nord said during last week’s council meeting. “We have the plaques. We just have to give them out to the owners.”
