Historic Preservation Commission

The Historic Preservation Commission is responsible for conducting studies for the identification, evaluation, registration, and designation of historic landmarks and historic districts. They proceed at their own initiative or upon petition from any person, agency, or organization; and make recommendations to the State Historic Preservation Officer for the listing of a property on the National Register of Historic Places. They also review applications for a certificate of appropriateness to alter designated historic landmarks or to alter buildings, structures, objects, and/or sites within a designated historic district. The duties of the Historic Preservation Commission are included in Chapter 2.84 of the Municipal Code.
