Return to Planning home

The Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) holds quasi-judicial public hearings to determine whether requested changes to the exterior of historic district or landmark properties are appropriate by state law, local ordinance and historic preservation plans for the districts. The HPC is comprised of nine members appointed by the Durham City Council and the Board of Commissioners. The HPC meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 8:30 a.m. in the Committee Room, second floor of City Hall.
The commission consists of nine members, four of which are appointed by the City Council. Members serve without compensation and must live within the corporate city limits. City and County taxes must not reflect any delinquency at the time of submission of the application.
