The Historic District Commission meets as needed in the conference room in the Municipal Building, 547 N. Carney Drive.

If you live in a local historic district, you are bound by a local design review to follow the regulations of the historic preservation commission regarding the external appearance of your home. Any additions or changes you want to make to your home have to comply with the rules.

One of the jobs assigned to the local preservation commission, this Historic District Commission, is to issue certificates of appropriateness (COAs). These certificates approve work done on buildings within the historic district. Everything that can be seen from outside the house or building, including windows, doors, paint colors, materials, rooflines, gutters, fences and yards must receive a COA (Certificate of Appropriateness) confirming that it is appropriate and acceptable.
