Historic District Commission
The Historic District Commission (HDC) was established under the authority of Michigan Public Act 169 and is comprised of five volunteers appointed to three-year terms by the Evart City Council. The HDC must include a graduate of an accredited school of architecture with two years of experience or an architect who is registered in this state. All members must demonstrate an interest in and knowledge of historic preservation and historic building styles and must be residents of Evart.
The City of Evart is proposing the designation of the Depot at 200 S. Main Street as the city’s first historic district. The establishment of any Historic District allows property owners with contributing properties the opportunity to apply for tax credits.
In order to preserve the architecture, character, and historical significance of structures in the City of Evart, other areas may at some point be proposed as historic districts.
The Historic District Commission meets quarterly. Please join us for our next one!
More information is available here.
The City of Evart continues to seek a City resident who is an archaeologist, architect, architectural historian, historian or historic architect to serve on the Historic District Commission. Commission members are unpaid volunteers, but the rewards are priceless. This is not a high time commitment, yet itis an integral part of our ongoing historic preservation efforts.
