Historic Preservation Commission


The Oberlin City Council in 2000 passed an historic preservation ordinance, updating an earlier ordinance that had established the Historic Preservation Commission and set standards for the selection of city historic landmarks.  The 2000 ordinance expanded the earlier one by protecting these landmarks, thus preserving the city’s irreplaceable architectural heritage.
