HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMISSION

 

The North Tonawanda Historic Preservation Commission is a Certified Local Government (CLG) within the City of North Tonawanda. It was established in 2005 when the North Tonawanda Common Council adopted a Historic Preservation Ordinance, Chapter 51 of the City Code.

Members of the Commission are appointed by the Mayor, with consent of the Common Council, to four-year terms. There are seven (7) members with a mix of skills and qualifications, including an architect, a business owner within the district, a licensed realtor, residents of the historic district and other persons committed to historic preservation, all of whom also have a known interest in the field.

The Commission hosts meetings open to the public, generally meeting the 3rd Monday of each month at 6:15 PM at City Hall in the second floor conference room.

There may be instances where a meeting is cancelled or changed and we will do our best to post that information to this web page. You may also contact the City Clerk's Office at 716.695.8555 for additional information.
