Preserving significant parts of our past gives us a sense of our "roots," and helps us remember where we came from and see where we want to go.
What Should Be Preserved
Not everything should be preserved. Just because a building or district is old doesn't mean it should be saved. To be considered for designation, a building or district must represent and reflect elements of the City's culture, social, economic, religious, political, architectural, or aesthetic heritage.
