Historic Preservation Commission consists of nine members
who are appointed by the Village President to serve three-year
terms. The Historic Preservation Commission meets on the
second Tuesday of each month at 5:00 p.m. Special meetings
are scheduled as needed.
The purpose of the Commission is to assist the Village
Board in the preservation, protection, enhancement, rehabilitation,
reconstruction, or use of historic structures, sites,
or areas in the Village, and to educate the residents
of the Village regarding the importance of historic preservation.
The Commission reviews and recommends to the Village Board
requests for property to be designated as a landmark or
the creation of an historic district. The Commission also
issues certificates of appropriateness for exterior alterations
to buildings designated as landmarks or located within
an historic district.
In celebration of National Preservation Month in May,
the Hinsdale Historic Preservation Commission presents
to you the 2013
Hinsdale Preservation Awards.
