Historic Preservation Ordinance

Historic preservation is declared to be a public purpose. The purpose of this ordinance is to safeguard the heritage of the city by preserving districts which reflects elements of the city's history, architecture, archaeology, engineering, or culture; to stabilize and improve property values in such district; to foster civic beauty and pride; to strengthen the local economy; to promote the use of the historic district for the education, pleasure and welfare of the citizens of the city and the state; and to encourage new buildings and development which will be harmonious with the existing historic buildings and neighborhoods but will not necessarily be of the same architectural style, the purpose being to develop the historic district as a vital living area in which each succeeding generation may build with the quality and sensitivity of past generations.

The Historic Preservation Ordinance is found in Chapter 42 of the Code of Ordinances. Click here to look up the Historic Preservation Ordinance.
