Historic Preservation Commission

Historic Preservation Commission


The Historic Preservation Commission acts in an advisory capacity to the Zoning Administrator as follows:

  • in matters concerning applications to designate historic landmarks
  • to review proposed changes within an historic district
  • to consider applications for permission to demolish and for conditional use permits for an historic landmark or within an historic district
  • to establish other rules and regulations consistent with the intent and purpose of the Historic Landmarks and Districts ordinance

The Commission is comprised of nine members appointed to three year terms. Members should have special interest, education and/or experience in historic preservation. Members must include at least two architects and one attorney and may not hold any other elected or appointed position in City government.

The Commission usually meets in the Heman Park Community Center, 975 Pennsylvania Avenue, at 6:30 pm on the third Thursday of the month when there is business.  Click on the Historic Preservation Commission link for more information, including a map of University City Historic Districts.
