Historic District Construction FAQ:
Is your property in Perrysburg's designated Historic District?
Are you planning a construction project (new, remodel, demolition, etc.) in the Historic District?
If so, you should be aware of how your project is affected by various local organizations and city government entities and regulations.
Where is the Historic District?
The boundaries of the Historic District are designated by the city's Planning and Zoning Code. If your property is near or at a boundary, please visit the Planning and Zoning Office located in the Municipal Building at the corner of Indiana Avenue & Walnut Street to view an enlarged map. You can then verify your location with respect to it and any recent additions to the district which may not yet be mapped.
What is Historic Perrysburg's role in your project?
Historic Perrysburg, Inc. has no regulations or legal authority over your project. It is simply an organization whose mission is "To cultivate an interest and awareness of the history and architecture of the Perrysburg area...and to provide assistance in the preservation of old buildings and sites." In certain cases, we may offer our opinion to the city or public regarding a project; however, that opinion has no legal binding.
