Preserve the Historic Georgetown Bank Building (Non-resident Petition)

PETITION TO THE TOWN COUNCIL OF GEORGETOWN, INDIANA
We, the former and future residents of and visitors to Georgetown, Indiana, whose names appear below, respectfully request that the Georgetown Town Council immediately refrain from any action leading to the demolition of the former Georgetown State Bank building currently owned by the town of Georgetown for the benefit of it's citizens.

This building, located at 9110 Indiana Hwy 64 is a contributing structure to the National Register-listed Georgetown Historic District. We ask that the Town officials think "outside the box" and work with all interested Georgetown residents, and any interested individuals or organizations, to save this important town landmark. This should include, but not be limited to working with Indiana Landmarks to market the building for sale or lease to a third party willing to invest in the historic structure and return it to productive use in the community.

We, the undersigned, firmly believe that this structure has historic, economic, and aesthetic value to Georgetown, Floyd County, and Indiana, and that demolition will negatively impact Georgetown's unique sense of place and economic well-being.
