Commission Responsibilities
It is the responsibility of the Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) to make recommendations to the City Council on matters concerning historic preservation. Since its inception, the Historic Preservation Commission has actively researched local properties that may be eligible for landmark designation by the City Council. The commission's other activities include the review of proposed exterior alterations to landmarks or to contributing features in historic districts, as well as promoting community awareness of historic preservation through public education programs such as tours and lectures and sponsorship of the annual Highland Park Preservation Awards. 

If you are a Highland Park resident and would like to have your home listed as a local landmark, please fill out the landmark nomination form. City staff will perform additional research and present the nomination to the Historic Preservation Commission.
