Historic Preservation Ordinances

Historic Preservation Ordinances

Adopting a local preservation ordinance, appointing a preservation commission, and designating historic resources is one of the best ways for a community to protect the historic character of its buildings, neighborhoods, and landmarks from inappropriate alterations, incompatible new construction, as well as outright demolition.
