City names preservation coordinator
Courier Staff Report

The city of Madison announced Friday that Indiana native Julianne Steger has been selected as the city's part-time historic preservation coordinator on a contractual basis.
Steger holds bachelor's degrees in architecture and historic preservation from Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Ga. And this month, she expects to graduate from Georgia State University with a master's degree in historic preservation.
While in college, she completed internships with historic preservation groups in Georgia, as well as Indiana Landmarks in Indianapolis.
"I am excited about working here in this lovely town and becoming part of the community of Madison," Steger said in a city news release.
She will begin on Aug. 15.
The city had a preservation planner, Camille Fife, for the last two years, but the bridge mitigation money that was funding her position ran out in April.
In March, Mayor Damon Welch announced that the city would support a part-time preservation coordinator and then appointed a committee to accept and review applications.
The review group included representatives of Historic Madison Inc., the Cornerstone Society, the Historic District Board of Review and the City Council. The committee selected four finalists from a pool of 16 applicants.
Welch then conducted final interviews with Ron Hopper, chair of the Historic District Board of Review, before making a final decision.
Will this person have any duties beyond the city? What about the historical resources in the county beyond the purview of the historical board? There currently is no protection for these resources through zoning or permit review and there is no one to give guidance to property owners to help them be better stewards of these resources.
