Elberton Historic Preservation

The Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) is responsible for protecting the historic district and for guiding changes within its boundaries. Property owners must submit an application for design review prior to planning a work project involving an exterior change to the appearance of any property within the districts. The Commission reviews applications on a monthly basis and upon approval issues Certificate of Appropriateness (COA).

Design Review Process

Property owners proposing changes within the historic districts are required to apply for a Certificate of Appropriateness (COA). The board meets the third Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. at City Hall, 203 Elbert Street, if there is an application to be considered. Contact the Office of the City Clerk at 706-213-3105 for questions or concerns.

Application for a Certificate of Appropriateness (COA)

Please Note: The City of Elberton Building Inspections cannot issue permits for any work until a Certificate of Appropriateness (COA) has been approved.

Design Standards

To guide design review decision –making, the Historic Preservation Commission utilizes the National Park Service, Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties.

For a more customized review taking into consideration the unique character of the region, state, area, and specifically this community and its resources, the following design guidelines were researched and adopted to assist HPC decisions.
