The Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) is an advisory commission, which makes evaluations of the historic resources of the City and makes recommendations to City Council and Planning Commission for legislative action. The HPC is established by Chapter 1335 of the Building Code. The Commission consists of seven citizens, two of which are at-large; two must be property owners or tenants from a designated Historic District or Historic Property, one representative from the Wyoming Historical Society, one representative of the Architectural Review Board, and one member of City Council. They typically meet on the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m.

Members: Eugene Allison (Architectural Review Board representative), Maureen Geiger, Cathy Ramstetter (Historic Property representative), David Sparks, and Jim Walton (Historical Society representative).
City Council Representative: Zach Green
Staff Representative: Tana Pyles, Community Development Specialist

Wyoming’s Village Historic District was nominated to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986. In addition to the Village Historic District, 18 homes are individually listed on the National Register.

Follow this link for an Historic Resources Map identifying the Historic District and Historic Properties.

The HPC is pleased to present to the community the Design Guidelines for Historic Properties. These Guidelines have been developed to ease the process of maintaining a home’s historic characteristics by providing information about a wide range of features – from foundations and roofs to doors and windows – related to Wyoming’s varied historic architecture.

Considering making changes to a structure located within the Village Historic District or otherwise on the National Register of Historic Places? The HPC encourages a pre-application meeting when projects are in the early design stages to discuss applying principles in the Guidelines for Historic Properties. Demolitions and/or alterations which impact 25% or more of a front facade, or 50% or more of a side elevation, requires a joint review from the HPC and Architectural Review Board (ARB) and approval by City Council. For projects meeting the above threshold, the review typically takes three months to complete and the guide is linked here. To request a courtesy plan review of preliminary exterior alterations, please contact the staff representative, Tana Pyles, at 513-679-4616 or tpyles@wyomingohio.gov.

Meeting minutes will be posted once they are approved by the Commission members at their next meeting.
