PNJ Toolkit Brief: What is a Historic Preservation Commission? [PDF]

National Alliance of Preservation Commissions


The NAPC is the only organization devoted solely to representing the nation's preservation design review commissions. NAPC provides technical support and manages an information network to help local commissions accomplish their preservation objectives. The Alliance also serves as an advocate at federal, state and local levels of government to promote policies and programs that support preservation commission efforts.

The Alliance's commission-related web articles include: "New TDR Law Creates Preservation Protection Opportunity;" "Reaching Out to Realtors, or, How to Get Them to Tell Clients They're in the Historic District;" "Small Town Preservation: Big Challenges and Creative Solutions," "Preservation Commissions Tackle Green Building Issues," and many more. See their website and become an NAPC member to access all of this information and more!
