Historic Preservation Commission Reviews:

Similar to the Planning and Zoning Commission, the HPC makes recommendations to City Council on the historic designation of districts and individual properties, as well as reviews and approves certain applications associated with a designated property.


The Historic Preservation Commission is responsible for overseeing and approving any repairs, development and other significant changes to historic properties.



Regular Meetings:

The Historic Preservation Commission typically holds their official meetings on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month. To find exact dates of upcoming meetings, visit the Calendar & Events page on The public is welcome and encouraged to attend.


Agendas and Scheduling a Public Hearing:
HPC agendas are typically full for months in advance. If your project requires HPC review and approval, be sure to factor this into your project timeline.


The City planner working on your project will schedule your public hearing for the earliest available date and will notify you of your review date and estimated time. You will then be responsible for completing public notice requirements.
