Wheatland Historic Preservation Commission: Linda Fabian, board member of the Wheatland Historic Preservation Commission, spoke to the Commissioners about the proposed Wheatland Downtown Historic District. Ms. Fabian spoke to property insurance premiums if included in a District. Mr. Shockley did state that the County rates could increase if additional building requirements were made by the Town of Wheatland within said district. Deanna Christensen did inform the Commissioners that she spoke with her insurance agent and was informed that her rates would increase as a result of being included in a Historic District. Tim Weaver spoke to the potential ramifications of being included in a Historic District due to loss of control and the potential for additional regulations. Mr. Weaver said those additional regulations could result in higher costs to construct, which would result in higher insurance rates. Will deRyk spoke to the concerns surrounding insurance. Brian Beadles of the Wyoming State Historic Preservation Office spoke to the benefits of the downtown district and how the district is worthy of a state nomination to the National Park Service (NPS). The NPS makes the final determination of whether a district receives national recognition as a Downtown Historic District. Ms. Kontour spoke about the role of the Commissioners and that they are tasked with protecting Platte County’s property. Ms. Fabian suggested a compromise to the current boundaries, which would remove the Courthouse from the proposed district but would include the detention facility and Coleman (Public Health/County Attorney) Building. Dan Brecht urged the Commissioners to not judge the proposed Wheatland District against other districts that have had issues. Ms. Kontour informed the group that Platte County is not interested in being part of the Wheatland Downtown Historic District. IT Update: Jordan Ham, WyoLogic, Inc., informed the Commissioners that most of the computers budgeted to be replaced have been delivered and that he will begin installing them soon.
