Carson does not currently have a historic preservation ordinance.
Despite lacking any historic preservation policies, Carson has demonstrated a willingness to recognize architecturally significant structures and ensure that they continue to reflect the community’s character. The City provided Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds to aid in the façade and signage repainting of the privately owned and operated Carson Car Wash, a highly intact 1956 Space Age/Googie car wash.
