Last month we reported on the citizen effort to secure city landmark status for the Grand Theater on Alton.
Good news comes from Alton Area Landmarks Association President Terry Sharp:
The Historic Commission voted to give the Grand Theater local landmark status. The owner can appeal this decision to the city council. So far he has not taken action to do so. Having local landmark status is one step to save the exterior of the building.
A group of citizens is having meetings about saving the Grand Theater. Contact Bill McKenzie (463-0625) for more info.
