Preservationist Group Plans Post-Theater Purchase Meeting

7/10/14 - A gathering Friday night will discuss the future of a group that had been dedicated to making sure a recently purchased landmark in Downtown Howell remained active. People for the Preservation of the Historic Howell Theater was created in February by former Howell resident Cindy Perkins who was concerned about the theater’s future after it had closed down the year before and then a plan to install a gourmet restaurant there fell through. Those concerns were alleviated last month when it was announced that Toledo-based filmmaker and movie enthusiast Tyler DePerro had purchased the theater and was planning to renovate the structure and reopen it later this year. With that in mind, Perkins, who is in the process of moving back to Howell, says the group is planning a get together 7pm Friday at the Log Cabin Restaurant in Genoa Township. Perkins says they’ve invited DePerro to attend and further discuss his plans for the theater, but they also plan to broaden their focus beyond just the preservation of the theater and generate conversation about keeping and maintaining historic Howell sites and other topics including the need for downtown parking. You’ll find details about the gathering through the Facebook link posted below. (JK)
