Historic Preservation Design Guidelines
The Historic Preservation Design Guidelines are a resource for property owners that outline best practices for repair or remodeling historic properties. If you own a historic property, whether or not it is a landmark or within a historic district, these Historic Preservation Guidelines can help you ensure that any repairs or changes to your property are compatible with its historic character.

While these guidelines are useful for all historic properties, they are especially important when considering exterior changes to properties that are located within local historic districts and that are designated as local historic landmarks. For these properties, Historic Preservation approval is mandatory for all exterior changes to any structure. During the review process, the Historic Preservation Commission and Community Development staff will use these Historic Preservation Guidelines to determine if the application conforms to the standards for approval.
