Historic Preservation Commission

The purpose of the Historic Preservation Commission is to safeguard the heritage of the City by preserving properties, which embody important elements of its cultural, social, economic, political, or architectural history. The Commission reviews applications for Certificates of Appropriateness when modifications are proposed to a local historic landmark or for a property in a locally designated historic district. In addition, they identify individual landmarks of historic significance recommending their designation as Historic Properties to the City Council. Meetings are on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall. For questions, please contact the Planning and Development Division at (828) 323-7422 or
