To hire a qualified architect to conduct a condition assessment of the Coleraine City Hall, listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
$4,500,000 the first year and $6,500,000 the second year are for history programs and projects operated or conducted by or through local, county, regional, or other historical or cultural organizations or for activities to preserve significant historic and cultural resources. Funds are to be distributed through a competitive grant process. The Minnesota Historical Society must administer these funds using established grant mechanisms, with assistance from the advisory committee created under Laws 2009, chapter 172, article 4, section 2, subdivision 4, paragraph (b), item (ii).

The assessment report has allowed the city to achieve its primary goal of determining city hall?s structural suitability for continued and future uses. It has also established a pathway of priorities for improvements, tentative cost for those improvements, and possible funding sources. It lays the groundwork for immediate needs and the next goal of a reuse study for Coleraine?s city hall.
An added benefit of the assessment report is it reinforced the citizen?s original thought that they were correct in assuming the building was important to the city for both its historical significance and usability, and their petition to the city council for preservation of some sort was justified.
We obtained these results because of time spent researching other community approaches to similar circumstances and gaining from them knowledge and assistance in the process. Our approach also involved ing and researching a number of consulting firms, many of which asked for a tour of the building and gave us unsolicited, advantageous suggestions. Having community members involved in analyzing and reviewing these firms in the selection process was also instrumental in selecting the proper firm. The firm selected was extremely attentive to our concerns and wishes and, we feel, provided us with a quality report that addressed all our issues.
Finally, the assistance of the Minnesota Historical Society staff in guiding us through the process was significant in allowing us to get the type of report we wanted.
