Sec. Kluttz To Tour Downtown Sanford

Sec. Susan Kluttz of the NC Department of Cultural Resources will be in Sanford on Tuesday, March 17 at 2:00 p.m. to show support for the possible return of historic preservation tax credits, which were not renewed by the General Assembly in January.

During the visit, Sec. Kluttz will tour local historic buildings that have benefited from historic preservation tax credits, including the Buggy Factory and Lee Furniture Building. Her goal is to show the opportunities for future investment if the tax credits are restored.

Historic preservation tax credits are being used currently to renovate the Buggy Factory, a project that was approved before the program ended.

Once complete, the renovated building will house the Sanford Area Growth Alliance and the Sanford/Lee County Planning and Development Department, creating a one-stop-shop for development and revitalization in Lee County.

The public is welcome to attend the tour. Following, there will be a gallery display of historic preservation tax credit projects and a short reception on the top floor of the Lee Furniture Building.
