Historic Preservation Working Group

The City of Bexley is putting together a historic preservation working group to study best practices for historic preservation, and submit recommendations to Bexley City Council.  

Bexley’s current historic preservation controls are limited to residential property, and are focused only on instances of proposed demolition.  Historic preservation codes can vary greatly in impact and form, but can encapsulate commercial as well as residential property, and can also address architectural preservation in instances of changes to property.  The City is seeking interested candidates to join a working group to study best practices in historic preservation law, and to make recommendations to Bexley City Council.  

Interested residents should have a professional background, or demonstrable personal expertise and interest, in topics of historic preservastion.  Please submit resumes and emails of interest to Debbie Maynard with Mayor Kessler's office at by September 14, 2018.
