Historic Preservation Commission Agendas 2020

Historic Preservation Commission Agendas 2020

The Historic Preservation Commission, as established by the 2001 Land Development Ordinance, works to identify, record and protect buildings, sites, places, structures, objects or landscape features of significant historical, architectural, social and archeological value. The identification of historic resources for municipal landmarking is based on the National Register Criteria for Evaluation established by the United States Department of the Interior. The eleven-member commission strives to help the public in understanding the importance of these historic resources, both individually and in the context of the surrounding districts and neighborhoods by encouraging appropriate development and rehabilitation in accordance with the  Jersey City Land Development Ordinance Chapter 345.71 : Historic Preservation Standards and the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards and Guidelines for the Treatment of Historic Properties, especially the Standards for Rehabilitation. The Commission is currently supported by two preservation staff, an attorney and secretarial staff.
