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.
