Historic Preservation

Downtown Mount Airy

The City of Mount Airy Historic Preservation Commission advises the City Board of Commissioners on historic landmark and property designations and to function as a design review board for proposed changes to the exterior of said properties and structures. Once a property receives local designation, any change to the exterior of the structure must be approved by the commission by the issuance of a Certificate of Appropriateness before work may commence. Exterior changes include façade alterations, signage, vegetation removal, new construction, demolition, etc. Design guidelines, adopted by the commission for use in guiding such changes, ensure that local landmarks are preserved for future generations.
