JEFFERSON HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMISSION
recognized as an invaluable cultural and social resource, our historic heritage can also be a powerful economic
engine. Properly preserved and utilized, Georgia's Historic Hometowns invite tourism, investment and
jobs. Our goal as custodians is to promote and insure the healthy future of Jefferson through education
and the proper restoration and preservation of our Historic Districts.
Jefferson Historic Preservation Commission was created by the Historic Preservation
Commission Ordinance of 1986. The Commission consists of five members who are appointed by the governing body of the
City of Jefferson. Members of the Commission have a variety of duties. Among those duties are: Reviewing all Certificate
of Appropriateness applications, making recommendations to the city of any property
or structure that should be included in a historic district, and to promote and encourage
the preservation of historic buildings and properties.
Jefferson Historic Preservation Commission meetings are held on the second Thursday
of the month at 6:00pm, at the Jefferson Public Library Community Room. These meetings are open to the public.
