The Bartlett city board took another step toward designating the Barteau-Dickey House at 2943 Sycamore View Road as a historic landmark at the June 27 meeting. It was the second reading of the ordinance, and the public hearing is set for July 11.

Terry Emerick, Bartlett director of planning and economic development, explained previously at the June 13 meeting that the building has undergone an interior renovation that made it possible to extend the life of the house. The first reading of the ordinance passed unanimously and without comment at the early June meeting.

Vice Mayor Young was absent for the June 27 meeting.
