Historic Preservation Commission
The Cedar Rapids Historic Preservation Commission makes recommendations on National Register of Historic Places nominations and local historic district designation. With City Council approval, the Historic Preservation Commission initiates historic preservation studies designed to identify and preserve the City’s historic building resources. The Commission also reviews and approves applications for Certificates of Appropriateness in local historic districts and local historic landmarks.
Regular meetings are held at City Hall, 101 First Street SE, at 4:30 p.m. on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month.
