Historic Preservation Commission

Recently, there has been increased interest in using outdoor spaces in the Historic District for dining and commercial use. To provide guidance and support, the Historic Preservation Commission has been reviewing the existing guidelines which relate to outdoor furniture and fixtures. The commission has discussed potential changes in public meetings over the last several months. In the public meeting on 11 January 2022, the commission approved updates to the existing guidelines. The updated version is available below.

Comments are welcome and may be submitted through the web form.  The commission will review the comments after 30 days and may update the guidelines as appropriate.
