The Historic District Commission (HDC) purpose is to safeguard the historical heritage of the City of Mason in designated areas. A historic district was created that encompasses the downtown section of the city (see map below for details). The charge given the HDC is consistent with the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 and later amendments to foster civic beauty and pride, promote the use of historic districts for the education, pleasure, and welfare of Mason's citizenry, and to improve and stabilize property values in historic districts. The Mason Historic District Commission is charged with reviewing plans for construction, alteration, moving, exterior changes, signage, or the demolition of all buildings in the historic district. Applications (Building Permit) for Historic District Commission (HDC) approval/Certificate of Appropriateness are due to City Hall one week in advance of a regularly scheduled meeting.
