Historic preservation is a public purpose which safeguards the heritage of the City of Northville by preserving elements of the city's history, architecture, archaeology, engineering, or culture; to stabilize and improve property values; foster civic beauty and pride; to strengthen the local economy; and promote the use of the historic district for the education, pleasure and welfare of the citizens of the city; and encourages new buildings and development which will be harmonious with the existing historic buildings and neighborhoods. The Historic District Commission is appointed by the City Council and serves as the body that reviews work in the City's historic district to carry out the procedures set forth in the City of Northville's historic preservation ordinance in conjunction with the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation.

The City of Northville, Northville DDA, Northville Parks and Recreation Department, City of Novi, Charter Township of Northville, Hines Park (Wayne County Parks) and Maybury Park (Michigan Department of Natural Resources) collaboratively embarked on the development of a physical connection between Hines and Maybury called “The Link”.

Developing a comprehensive bicycle and pedestrian wayfinding program to assist users in navigating “The Link” was paramount. An informative and visible signage system for the existing connection was developed and set a precedent for growth of a signed network in the area as routes are identified.
