Update on Kosciusko and Other Historic Schools

The Detroit Historic Designation Advisory Board will have a hearing regarding the ninety-three Detroit Public School buildings that were nominated to the National Register of Historic Places. This meeting will happen on Thursday, April 8 at 4:00 p.m. in the Committee of the Whole Room on the thirteenth floor of the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center (2 Woodward Ave. in downtown Detroit).

Of the ninety-three schools that have been nominated to the National Register, four of them are in the Warrendale neighborhood. These include Dixon Middle School (19500 Tireman St.), Herman/Rogers Academy (16400 Tireman St.), Kosciusko Elementary School (20220 Tireman St.), and Rudiman Junior High School/ Cody 9th Grade Academy (7350 Southfield Rd.).

The public is encouraged to attend.  However, comments should be limited to discussion of the historical or architectural significance of these buildings.

Comments may also be submitted in writing to the Historic Designation Advisory Board.  Their address is 204 Coleman A. Young Municipal Center in Detroit, Michigan 48226.

Once these applications have been reviewed at the local level (again), they will go back to the Michigan State Historic Review Board on May 10.

Is there a list of all 92 schools available?

I have it on paper. I'm not sure if it's on-line anywhere.

I guess I'll have to scan them over the weekend and post the list.

Okay - I'm having issues w/ my scanner. I'm going to shoot the folks at the commission an email to see if I can get an electronic copy of their list.
