About the Historic Preservation Commission
The Commission was established by local ordinance to ensure that renovations and new construction in Decatur's five Local Historic Districts are consistent with the character of the neighborhood. The five districts are the McDonough-Adams-King's Highway District, Ponce de Leon Court, Old Decatur, Parkwood, and the Clairemont Historic District. 

The Commission must approve exterior projects to homes located within these districts by issuing a Certificate of Appropriateness before a building permit can be issued. Some projects may be administratively approved through the issuance of a Certificate of Exemption. The Historic Preservation Commission is staffed by Aileen de la Torre, Planner. Call 404-371-8386, or e-mail aileen.delatorre@decaturga.com
