Historic and Archaeological Preservation


In January 2010, the city's Public Service and Infrastructure Committee received a presentation from staff concerning the issue of local landmark designation without owner consent. Members decided that a comprehensive review of the Historic and Archaeological Preservation Overlay section of the Land Development Regulations (LDRs) was necessary. To accomplish this task, the Community Preservation Commission (CPC), now known as the Community Planning and Preservation Commission (CPPC), formed a Committee on Historic Preservation to solicit input from stakeholders and interested parties. The stated objective was to enhance activities of the Commission and clarify the processes and procedures related to historic and archeological preservation.

At the CPC workshop on April 14, 2010,  members voted to establish the Historic Preservation Committee. At the first meeting of the Committee on May 18, 2010, the Committee agreed to form five subcommittees to meet individually to focus on the various issues. The subcommittees’ recommendations made up the final recommendation of the Historic Preservation Committee.


Land Development Regulations


Chapter 16 of the City Code is formally known as the Land Development Regulations (LDRs), which include zoning regulations and site planning and design standards. The LDRs in their current form became effective on September 10, 2007 and have since been modified periodically to stay current with evolving community preferences and to resolve minor inconsistencies, improve clarity of understanding and respond to changes in local, state and federal law. 

Ideas and requests for improvements to the LDRs are submitted from a variety of sources, including the general public, city council, administration and staff. Improvements are generally processed bi-annually, twice per year.

To submit your code improvement suggestion(s), email: Derek S. Kilborn, City Planner,
