  1. Thank you very much for posting this JP Res. Do you have any info on the outcome of this hearing? I’m really glad to see this, as I live really close to Horace Mann, and I’d hate to see it threatened – it’s a great resource and a beautiful structure. Is there some place where the city posts the results of these nominations?
