The Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) is a Certified Local Government (CLG) body that has the authority to designate individual properties as local historic landmarks, as well as, areas within the Town as historic districts.  Owners of designated historic landmarks or properties within a historic district are required to obtain approval for exterior changes (roof, siding, gutters, etc.) from the Commission. 

In addition, the HPC makes recommendations to the Planning Board regarding applications for site plan review or subdivisions of real property containing landmarks or within a historic district. The HPC has conducted surveys of significant historic, architectural and cultural landmarks within the Town.  The survey data along with designated landmark information is available from the Interactive On-Line Map (see link below).
