Historic District Guidelines

For several historic districts, especially those recently designated, the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) has adopted design guidelines tailored to the building types and conditions of the district. The guidelines also include a brief historical overview of the district.

Community Historic District Design Guidelines

Several community organizations have developed historic district design guidelines for their own neighborhoods. Although not officially adopted by HPRB, these guidelines provide sound advice and describe the principles that guide preservation review by the respective organizations.
