Valdosta Historic Preservation Commission


The purpose of the Valdosta Historic Preservation Commission is to protect, preserve, and promote the City's historic resources. The Historic Preservation Commission is empowered to regulate the demolition, relocation, or any material change to the exterior of historic resources and non-historic resources located in the Valdosta Local Historic District. Any exterior material changes, including the installation of signs, to properties within the Local Historic District must first receive a Certificate of Appropriateness (COA) from the Historic Preservation Commission (HPC). The HPC is also tasked with several other responsibilities, including recommending historic properties for local historic designation. A full listing of the HPC's powers and duties can be found in the need to be submitted to the Planning and Zoning Office by the 15th of any given month in order for the request to be decided by the HPC at the following month's meeting.  These applications will appear before the HPC for review on the first Monday of the following month.
