Additional Preservation Incentives
A community can offer preservation incentives in many forms, including:
- Waiving permit fees or plan-check application fees for preservation projects
- Giving preservation projects priority in the plan-check process
- Waiving parking and/or setback requirements
- Approving a use for a property that isn’t specifically allowed in the property’s zoning yet is allowed in other zones
The existence of such incentives generally indicates that the community has a strong commitment to historic preservation.
