NC Secretary of Cultural Resources Susan Kluttz is scheduled to speak in Statesville Thursday morning at an event organized to push for the reinstatement of state tax credits that encourage the rehabilitation of historic buildings. The City of Statesville and Downtown Statesville Development Corporation are hosting the event, set to begin at 11 a.m. in the lobby of Statesville City Hall.

City Council members passed a resolution in support of the restoration of historic tax credits Monday night that will be read and presented during Thursday's event.

In addition to local builders, developers, bankers, property owners and business leaders, Statesville Mayor Costi Kutteh is encouraging the public to attend. "The whole community benefits from the development of historic buildings such as the Vance Hotel. It means jobs and visitors and can be a huge boon for our local economy," he explained.

Secretary Kluttz agrees, stating, "The Historic Tax Credits brought jobs and economic development to rural towns and big cities across North Carolina. The rebirth of one abandoned downtown building has had a ripple effect throughout a community and often sparks a renaissance of development in nearby structures. In addition, these historic buildings and mills are an emotional tie to our heritage and exemplifies what makes North Carolina unique. These credits are critical for North Carolina's economic recovery. "

More information on this event and the Historic Tax Credits can be found on the City's website:
