Zephyrhills City Council to discuss historic district design guidelines

ZEPHYRHILLS — The few blocks that make up the city's historic district are a reflection of years past, with bungalow-style homes and wrought-iron details.

And the city's Historic Preservation Board wants keep the district's old charm intact.

The board is set to discuss design guidelines for the old homes and buildings within the historic district at the Zephyrhills City Council meeting tonight at 6.

Details of the city's midyear budget adjustments will also be made available.

Another issue up for discussion is a proposal for the city to buy 2 acres of land just outside the Hillsborough River Basin. The land would cost about $106,000 and be used by the city's Utilities Department for a new well site, according to a city memo.

Also, the city is considering spending about $49,000 to build a park pavilion adjacent to the city's water play park at Zephyr Park. The cost for the pavilion, if approved, would include a 15 percent discount using a bid contract from the city of Jacksonville.
