Historic Preservation Commission

The Cedar Rapids Historic Preservation Commission makes recommendations on National Register of Historic Places nominations and local historic district designation. With City Council approval, the Historic Preservation Commission initiates historic preservation studies designed to identify and preserve the City’s historic building resources. The Commission also reviews and approves applications for Certificates of Appropriateness in local historic districts and local historic landmarks. For more details about the historic preservation review process, please click here. 

Exterior Work Application
For properties within the city's two local districts and local landmarks, exterior projects need to complete an exterior work application. To have a project reviewed by our Historic Preservation Commission, applications must be completed and turned in to City staff the Wednesday prior to Historic Preservation Commission meetings
