The Historic Preservation Commission consists of seven members, who are residents of the City-Parish and are appointed by majority vote of the Metropolitan Council. At least one member of the Historic Preservation Commission must be a resident or property owner of a locally designated historic district.
Historic Preservation Commission meetings are held in the large conference room at:
1100 Laurel Street
Baton Rouge LA 70802
A Certificate of Appropriateness is required for any exterior change that is visible from a public street to any part of a private property within a locally designated historic district or landmark, unless the change is determined to be ordinary maintenance and repair.
Call the Office of the Planning Commission at 225-389-3144 to see if your property is in a locally designated historic district.
