The Historic Commission works to protect locally designated historic districts and landmarks and acts as a resource for owners of historic properties.  Owners of properties that come under the purview of the Commission need approval to make changes to the exterior of their properties, in order to ensure that modifications are made in an historically sensitive manner.
