Washington's Historic District "Guidelines for Property Owners"

Part 3: Historic Preservation Commission

Members of the Historic Preservation Commission are City residents appointed to three-year terms by the Washington City Council. In addition to issuing Certificates of Appropriateness for major works in the Historic District, the Commission also recommends to City Council properties to be designated as historic districts and landmarks and recipients of Downtown Washington Facade Improvement Grants.

The Historic Preservation Commission regularly meets on the first Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, Municipal Building, unless otherwise announced. Agendas are posted on the public bulletin board in the Municipal Building and are advertised in the Washington Daily News.

Submit requests for consideration by the Historic Preservation Commission to the City's Department of Planning and Development in the Municipal Building on or before the 15th of preceding month.
