Create a top 5-10 most endangered structure list to alert Lowell citizens to the threat of demolition of our historic structures. DIY Lowell could solicit nominations from the public at-large and then create publicity through local media and present the list to the Lowell historic board and city council.
It would create public awareness that many historic buildings are under constant threat of demolition by neglect. It could motivate public or private interests to rehab these structures. It could become an annual list.
