Historic District Commission
The Department of Community and Economic Development provides administrative and technical support to the members of the Historic District Commission which is a group of seven (7) citizens appointed by the mayor for the purpose of recognition, preservation, and protection of historic, architectural and archaeological areas and structures within the City of Flint.
There are thirty (30) designated historic districts and buildings in the city of Flint. The HDC's primary role is reviewing plans for construction, renovation, demolition, or moving of historic resources, and granting or denying certificates of appropriateness.
Any historic structure or structure in a historic area must receive a certificate of appropriateness from the Historic District Commission BEFORE work commences. If you do not have the certificate of appropriateness your work will be shut down.
All houses and buildings in Carriage Town are subject to the HDC rules!
