The Historic Preservation Commission meets at least quarterly. Regular meeting dates are the first Wednesday of each month at 12:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers at city hall.
Duties & Responsibilities
The duties of the Historic Preservation Commission are to keep an inventory of all historic properties within the community and to make recommendations concerning historic preservation planning issues.
This commission also recommends to the Planning and Zoning Commission and the Board of Aldermen concerning amendments to the historic preservation ordinance, including the rezoning of new historic (H-1) districts.
The Historic Preservation Commission also reviews proposed alterations to the exteriors of properties within the H-1 zoning districts, granting approval for these with a permit called a Certificate of Appropriateness. Get the application (PDF).
