Historic Preservation Ordinance Update

The City Council has directed City staff to update the City’s Historic Preservation Ordinance to address community concerns and ensure that it reflects best practices in the field of historic preservation.  Below is a link to view the current ordinance and other historic preservation-related sections of the Zoning Code as well as information about the ordinance update process.  Everyone is encouraged to review the current ordinance and provide comments on changes that you believe should be made to the ordinance.  Staff will provide all comments received to the decision-makers for consideration during the update process. See below for information about a virtual informational workshop that will be held to provide a summary of the current ordinance provisions and changes that may be considered.
