City of Racine residents are invited to attend a public information meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday about placing the Manree Park neighborhood on the National Register of Historic Places.

Manree Park residents received calls over the weekend from the Landmark Preservaation Committee inviting them to the meeting to learn the progress of a survey being conducted by Legacy Architects.

The neighborhood was chosen for study based on the variety of architecture, Assistant Director of City Development Matt Sadowski told The Journal Times last summer.

A $23,000 grant from the Wisconsin Historical Society paid for the study. For the purposes of the study, Manree Park borders were defined as Lathrop Avenue to the east, Ohio Street to the west, Washington Avenue to the south and Graceland Avenue to the north.

The information meeting begins at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Goodland Elementary, 4800 Graceland Avenue.
