Will my property rights be restricted by historic designation?
Historic preservation is a required part of our Master Plan and often called overlay zoning. Other aspects of zoning place restrictions on your property rights. For example, they determine how much of your lot can be occupied with a building, and how close to a property line a building can be. The object of historic designation is to preserve the historic character of your property, the Commission will consider how your plans meet these objects.
