Local Preservation Ordinances
Our Model Ordinance
Preservation Connecticut has drafted a model Historic Preservation Ordinance, based on the ordinances that have been successfully adopted in Hartford and other communities. It has also assembled a Local Historic Districts page, which maps all of Connecticut’s local historic districts and contains a wealth of information for historic district commissioners and property owners. Your community can adapt our model to choose the degree of involvement that best suits you.
The Hartford commission also works with property owners to find solutions and even to approve alternate materials for siding or replacement windows, if the alternate materials do not seriously impair historic character.
