The HPC at Work

The Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) uses a specific set of criteria (mandated by Subtitle 29-104 of the County Code) in determining the historical and architectural significance of the county's historic resources. The criteria were developed from a review of National Register criteria, state law, and other plans and ordinances. They provide a broad framework for evaluating all aspects of the county's cultural heritage.
