Another topic of discussion at the council meeting was a group of Historic Pella Trust board members that presented a proposal for the city to consider developing a historic preservation district in Pella. The area the trust is looking to create would be the Collegiate Historic District, located just north of Central College, consisting of 35 buildings and structures, many of which were built between 1885 and 1925. The Historic Pella Trust is also working on the state and national level to get protection and regulation for the area, but as Director of the trust Melynda Van Zee points out, all of these processes take lots of discussion and years to complete.
