Langley gets funds for preservation

Langley has added more money to its historic-preservation kitty.

The city council this week voted to accept $6,000 in matching funds from Island County.

The county sets aside $1 from each recording at the auditor’s office for use in historic preservation.

“It’s not being robbed from anywhere else,” said city Planning Director Larry Cort.

The grant will be added to a recent $9,000 state grant to hire a part-time person to conduct a “full-blown” survey of 60 historic properties in the city, said Councilman Bob Waterman, head of the city’s volunteer Historic Preservation Commission.
