Historic Preservation Ordinance
The Historic Preservation Ordinance has four areas of focus:
Designation of landmarks and historic districts;
Review and approval authority of proposed alterations to these buildings, and to new construction or proposed demolition in these areas;
Review of applications for demolition or moving of non-landmarked buildings over 50 years old to prevent the loss of buildings that may have historic or architectural significance and to provide the time necessary to initiate designation or to consider alternatives to demolition of the building.
In order to preserve the historic integrity of the individual landmarks and properties within historic districts, the historic preservation ordinance requires prior approval of exterior changes to buildings or sites, or proposed demolitions. Proposals must meet the purposes and standards outlined in the historic preservation code, and adopted design guidelines. These tasks are carried out by the Landmarks Board.
