About the Historic Landmark Preservation Committee
Lancaster has many historic landmarks dating back to the 1800's that still stand today and preserving these landmarks is critical. The purpose of the committee is to become familiar with the buildings, land, areas, and districts within the city that may be eligible for designation as historic landmarks. The committee serves in an advisory capacity to the Planning and Zoning Commission.
This Committee is composed of 5 members and 1 alternate. Members are appointed to 2-year staggered terms by the Planning and Zoning Commission and confirmed by the City Council. The alternate's term must be renewed annually.
