Historic Preservation

From its humble beginnings to present day, St. Petersburg has continued to develop and revitalize the unique community that has been created, bringing new restaurants, retail shops, and a movie theater to the downtown area. Downtown has risen like a phoenix, garnering over $1.6 billion in construction investment. St. Petersburg changed significantly over the years, and will continue to do so as people discover the economic prosperity, livability and beauty of St. Petersburg - "The Sunshine City."  

The Historic Preservation staff works with property owners, local businesses, public agencies and community organizations to help identify, preserve, and promote St. Petersburg's unique character. Staff is responsible for the administration of the Local Landmarks Program, the Monuments and Markers Program, the Ad Valorem Tax Exemption Program, and the Transfer of Development Rights program. Additionally, staff coordinates Certified Local Government (CLG) responsibilities with the State Historic Preservation Office, reviews nominations to the National Register of Historic Places nominations, conducts Section 106 reviews, serves as staff to the Community Preservation Commission and aids the public with historical research, rehabilitation issues and economic incentives.
