A lot of Guilford County business has been put on hold due to the state regulations implemented to deal with the coronavirus pandemic.

However, on Tuesday, Aug. 18, at 6 p.m. the county’s Historic Preservation Commission will meet to discuss possible historic designations and other matters regarding some well-known structures in the area.

The commission has duties that include designating buildings to be landmarks as well as approving proposed changes to buildings that have been declared historic.

Here are the items slated for the meeting:

  • There will be a “Landmark Designation” request from Daniel Craft for the William and Martha Carter House at 1012 Country Club Dr. in Greensboro.
