After a few questions and a brief discussion, the WCHDC moved to accept the final report and to recommend approval of the Jarvis Stone School Local Historic District to the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioner. The vote was unanimous in favor of the motion.
Our next step in the process is to have a motion to create the Jarvis Stone School Local Historic District placed on the agenda for the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners.

The Public Hearing on the Jarvis Stone School Local Historic District Ordinance was held on Thursday, January 10, 2013, at 7:00 PM in the Jarvis Stone School (7991 North Territorial Road).
The Jarvis Stone School Local Historic District Study Committee Report was presented to the Washtenaw County Historic District Committee at their Nov. 1 Meeting. The WCHDC reviewed the report and recommended that the draft be accepted and that a public hearing be held to review it.
At the 11/13/2012 Salem Township Board meeting, Marcia Van Fossen brought forth a resolution that was seconded by Wayne Wallezy in support of the Jarvis Stone School Local Historic District that would have the township Supervisor send a letter to the Washtenaw County Historic District Commission indicating the STB’s support of the approval of the Jarvis Stone School Local Historic District by the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners. During the Public Comment section of the agenda, Melissa Milton-Pung introduced the report and Terry Cwik requested a positive vote by the STB. Karl Gierman and Jim DiMilia were also in attendance. After a short discussion, which only contained positive comments about the report, the study committee, the SAHS and the property, a roll call vote was taken and the resolution was approved 7-0.
