The Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) makes evaluations of Wyoming’s historic resources and makes recommendations to City Council for legislative action. The Commission consists of two at-large citizens and two Historic District residents, plus representatives from the Wyoming Historical Society, Architectural Review Board, and City Council, with support from City staff. They typically meet on the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m.

Members: Eugene Allison (Architectural Review Board representative), Chris Magee, Bobbie McTurner, 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.

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.
