City lawmakers will consider an application for landmark status for three properties in the Fruit Belt.

The Common Council’s Legislation Committee, which meets at 2 p.m. Tuesday in Council Chambers, will take up the application that has been approved by the city’s Preservation Board.

Landmark status for 195, 204 and 225 High St. would make demolition of the buildings there more difficult. A new pharmacy and cafe is planned by St. John Baptist Church on the site of one of the buildings.
