The Joliet Historic Preservation Commission will hold a public hearing on landmark status for St. Mary Carmelite Church at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

The church at 113 N. Ottawa St. has been in the hands of private owners since 2012. Attempts to redevelop the property have been unsuccessful. The property is currently for sale.

St. Mary Carmelite opened in 1882.

If local landmark status is approved by the Historic Preservation Commission, the recommendation would go to the City Council for final approval.
