Historic Preservation Commission

Florence Historic Preservation Logo

The City of Florence established a Historic Preservation Commission in 2015 and it has seven citizens, one non-voting City Council member, and one non-voting youth member. The City is a Certified Local Government (CLG) from the National Park Services and hopes to access no match grants to conduct preservation studies in Florence.

The Commission is tasked with establishing a local historic register that can help protect buildings and allow them to be eligible for the State Historical Fund grant program and residential State Historic Rehab tax credit.

If you have further questions or would like to serve on the commission, please contact the Planning Director.

FHPC meetings are held on the last Tuesday of the month at 5:00 pm in City Council Chambers.
