Warm Mineral Springs Park nomination moves forward
As part of the Warm Mineral Springs Park Master Plan process, City staff worked with Kimley-Horn & Associates and Lorrie Muldowney, President of Creative Preservation, LLC., to submit a nomination in November 2018 to add the park’s three existing buildings to the National Register of Historic Places on behalf of the City of North Port. The Springs itself was added to the National Register in 1977.
The Division of Historical Resources - Florida National Register Review Board held a hearing for this nomination on, May 23. They voted unanimously to forward the nomination of the Warm Mineral Springs Park Buildings to the National Park Service for consideration for addition to the National Register under criterion A and C for entertainment/recreation and architecture, with a period of significance from 1959-1960 at the local level. As the next step in this process, the National Park Service will now review the nomination and the City expects to have the final response later this summer.
