Dear Ms Simon:
In these uncertain economic times many historical rehabilitation projects are confronted with a paucity of financial support from traditional funding sources. This fact only serves to accentuate the unique importance of the Massachusetts Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit Program to help keep alive an amalgam of economic development and historic preservation in our State.
We view your continued support for this project as an investment in our community’s economic well being and a ringing endorsement of the value and goals of historic preservation. We are deeply indebted to you and this tax credit program for the assistance you have tendered Mr. Peterson and this Commission in our mutual efforts to bear true faith to the past, present, and future generations of this place.
We affirm our view that this tax
credit program is of inestimable value to the past and the future of the
Stevens Linen Works footprint and
Thank You for your attention.
