Initial plans for City Hall outlined

History will be paying off for Tracy’s Municipal Building.

The process of getting the building on the National Register of Historic Places began about four years ago when architectural history surveys of Tracy’s downtown took place to identify what buildings could be eligible for the Register and what that could mean in terms of gaining access to funding sources for improvements to properties.

The building was formally added to the Register last summer, which opened doors for the City to apply for Legacy grants from the Minnesota Historical Society for condition assessment work, design and construction work on the building’s shell and other items such as the HVAC system.
