Public Comment Sought on Proposed Changes to the
Historic Preservation Ordinance

The Planning and Development Department is pleased to release the proposed changes to Chapter 33, Historic Preservation Ordinance, for public comment. The changes, which were crafted during months of public meetings held by the Historic Preservation Ordinance Review Committee, reflect Mayor Parker's charge to correct and clarify targeted items and create greater consistency for applicants and for the Houston Archaeological and Historical Commission (HAHC).

The proposed changes will provide applicants with additional options for a streamlined approval, provide HAHC with improved guidance on which to base its decision and create a more efficient user-friendly process. The proposed changes and the information related to this process can be found at

HAHC will hold a public hearing on these changes at the conclusion of its regularly scheduled 3:00 p.m. meeting:

July 22, 2015
Annex Council Chambers
900 Bagby

Comments from the public may be submitted in person at the public hearing, by calling 832-393-6556, via email to or by mail to HPD Review, Planning and Development Department, P.O. Box 1562, Houston, Texas 77251-1562. HAHC will review all comments and consider final action at its August 27, 2015 meeting. The commission's recommendation will then be forwarded to the Mayor and City Council for consideration.
