The purpose of the commission is to foster civic beauty, stabilize and increase property values, strengthen the local economy, maintain and enhance the distinctive character, safeguard the city’s heritage, and facilitate reinvestment and revitalization through historic preservation.
The commission adopted a 3-Year Strategic Plan (PDF) on February 22, 2022. The plan is intended to guide and focus the commission activities for 2022 to 2025.
