KINGMAN - Arizona State Parks Director Bryan Martyn will visit Kingman today as part of a statewide tour to focus attention on "Arizona's historic and cultural treasures," according to a press release.
Martyn is scheduled to meet with local leaders at 2:30 p.m. in the City Council chambers, 310 N. 4th St. The meeting is open to the public.
"My goal is to bring attention to critical historic structures and how they could be protected through adaptive re-use," said Martyn.
Bill Shilling of Kingman's Development Services Department said the city has worked closely with the parks department and State Historic Preservation Office to complete local projects, including the Santa Fe Railroad Depot, the Powerhouse Visitor's Center, the Boy's & Girls Club, and the nature walk at Palo Christi School.
The state parks department manages all 27 state parks as well as the State Historic Preservation Office, which currently manages the Main Street Program.
