At Tuesday's Panama City commission meeting, one commissioner continued his push to bring special recognition to a historic Panama City community.
Commissioner Kenneth Brown outlined his plans to get the Glenwood area recognized as a special historic district. As News 13 told you Monday night, Brown is trying to get special banners put up along Martin Luther King Jr. boulevard that would spotlight African-American achievement in the area.
Annie Harris, a Rosenwald alum (class of '62) who started a similar program in a Tallahassee neighborhood, presented a banner to new Rosenwald principal Chandra Tyson, and gave her support for the project.
"It brings revenue, it brings tourism dollars and family reunions and all of those things," Harris said. "It is an opportunity that I think this commission would embrace."
The commission decided to go ahead with a town hall to discuss Brown's project. No date has been set yet for that meeting.
