Specialty License Plate

Preservation Kentucky

A group dedicated to safeguarding Kentucky's architectural treasures is attempting to roll out a specialty license plate.

The non-profit, Preservation Kentucky, needs 900 applications by December 2013.

From the proceeds, the group hopes to create a special grant fund. Cities and non-profits could then use the money to fund preservation efforts or add buildings to the National Register.

Executive Director Rachel Kennedy says another goal of the plate is to raise awareness for historic sites across the Bluegrass.
