Historic Preservation Committee
Along with the designation of the district in 1978 the Municipal Council also established the Historic Preservation Committee (HPC). The duties of the committee are outlined in City Ordinance and include working to protect and preserve the District through project review and the issuance of a Certificate of Appropriateness for all exterior modifications to any site or building within the District's Boundaries. For a project to be approved by the HPC, it must meet the principles outlined by federal law (Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation) and the City of Logan Historic District Design Review Standards. Copies of these standards are available in the Department of Community Development office.
The Committee meets the (as needed) the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month at 12:00 Noon in the Logan Council Chambers.
Committee members: Thomas Graham, Viola Goodwin, Amy Hochberg, David Lewis, Keith Mott, Gary L. Olsen, Christian Wilson
