Historic Preservation Commission

  • About the Commission

    The Historic Preservation Commission identifies properties, structures, and areas that are historically significant. This Commission also advises the Plan Commission and City Council on the designation of Landmarks, Conservation, and Historic Districts. Additionally, the Commission acts to facilitate the protection of visual characteristics by reviewing, giving advice, and passing upon changes to the exterior architectural appearance.

    The Commission consists of seven regular members and two alternates that are appointed by the Mayor with City Council approval. Members are chosen on the basis of expertise, experience, or interest in the related subject matter. Members are appointed to three-year terms. Alternate members must first serve for one-year prior to being appointed as a regular member.
