Historic District Standards protect the special character of Greensboro’s historic neighborhoods: College Hill, Dunleath and Fisher Park.

Planning department staff are updating current standards.

“Where necessary, we need to bring our standards up-to-date in terms of preservation science, energy efficiency, sustainability and resilience,” said senior planner Mike Cowhig.

City staff also will ensure standards conform with the US Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties, the country’s official preservation standards.
