Historic preservation applications

You can find applications related to heritage preservation in Minneapolis.

All modifications to designated properties require review by Community Planning & Economic Development (CPED) staff.

On small projects limited to minor alterations of a designated property, CPED staff can conduct preservation reviews administratively.

On larger projects that include major alterations of a designated property, CPED staff conducts reviews and prepares recommendations that are presented at public hearings before the Heritage Preservation Commission.

Review is commonly limited to only exterior alterations to a property, although a few properties also require interior alteration review if their interior is designated.
