  • Zoners want to shrink historic district, let owners opt out

    A discussion on creating a historic district in Lawrenceburg led to more questions than answers for the planning and zoning board last Tuesday night.
    What the board says it does know: Planning and Zoning can either recommend or not recommend the creation of a historic district in Lawrenceburg.
    The board must hold a public hearing in February, with affected property owners properly notified.
    The city council will have the final vote, and the ultimate power to establish the district, or dismiss the proposal entirely.

  • Bound in black and white, a century of local history

    To understand Lawrenceburg’s future, start with the Kentucky River.
    Bill Bryant, Anderson County native and co-author of the pictorial history volume “Lawrenceburg,” opened to the first page of “Lawrenceburg” and a black and white photo of the river.
    Technically, it’s a rejuvenated spring that fell 300-400 feet from its original location, he says.
    The river is the same water source for the former Cedar Brook Distillery, which operated a water pipeline to the former Cedar Brook pump station.

  • If you live in historic district, can you paint the town red? Purple?

    A year has passed since the first public hearing, and Anderson County residents — namely the Planning and Zoning Board — are still not quite sure about moving forward with an historic district in downtown Lawrenceburg.
    To be sure, the establishment of a historic district should not be taken lightly.
    I think it’s fair to say no one wants downtown Lawrenceburg to fall apart.
    The more cynical of us may say it’s doing a good job of falling apart already.
