About the Historic Preservation Commission
The Commission was established by local ordinance to ensure that renovations and new construction in Decatur's four Local Historic Districts are consistent with the character of the neighborhood. The four districts are the McDonough-Adams-King's Highway District, Ponce de Leon Court, Old Decatur, 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.
Current commission members are Alan Clark (Chair), Trent Myers (Vice Chair), Lisa Turner, Sara Beth Gehl, Mark Ethun, Geoff Koski, and Nick Misner.
