What We Do

The Historical Commission is the body created by City Council to oversee the Heritage Conservation District. The Commission is made up of seven individuals appointed by City Council to review applications for new construction and demolition within the conservation district.

 

Unlike the HARB district, where all exterior alterations to properties must be reviewed, the Heritage Conservation District involves only the review and approval of new construction or demolition projects that will have an impact on the surrounding streetscape (that is, the appearance or character of the street or neighborhood).

 

Examples of the types of projects reviewed by the Historical Commission include:

– Constructing a new building or an addition to a building
– Adding a porch, balcony, or deck
– Demolishing an entire building, porch, balcony, deck, or dormer

 

*The Commission does NOT review maintenance or alterations such as changes in windows and doors, fences, masonry work, roofing, or siding.
