City Council Votes to Honor the Late Rita Reagan

03 | 08 | 2024

The late Rita Reagan was a champion for historic preservation. She worked tirelessly to protect and restore the historic Norman Studios on Arlington Road, including countless hours advocating for the city to purchase the adjacent property, once a part of the original studio.

The Council acquired the property in 2023 which included the set building and a buried swimming pool. Last month the Council voted unanimously to name the set building the Rita F. Reagan Building in her honor.
