This Historic Preservation Commission is pleased to present to the community the newly developed 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. Caring for a historic home is both a challenge and an opportunity for homeowners to protect the past while preserving our neighborhoods for future generations. Please take an opportunity to view the Design Guidelines for Historic Properties.

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