The Lafayette Historic Preservation Commission is a 9 member commission appointed by the Mayor of Lafayette and charged with preserving and protecting the historic and architecturally worthy buildings, structures, sites, monuments, streetscapes and neighborhoods which impart a distinct aesthetic quality to the City and serve as visible reminders of its historic heritage. The 9 members of the Historic Preservation Commission come from a variety of disciplines including contractors, architects, historians and historic building owners. The Commission was created by the City Council in April 1993 with City Ordinance 93-18 - at that time it was known as the Historic Review Board. The City Council approved City Ordinance 2010-11 to align with new State enabling legislation. For more information, please visit the Historic Preservation Commission page.
