An Act Authorizing the Establishment of Historic Preservation Commissions
State enabling legislation already allows communities to create local historic districts and local historic properties, but more than 75 percent of Connecticut's historic buildings and sites remain unprotected! This bill offers protection of these sites by functioning in parallel to local historic districts where they exist, or as the only preservation commission in the 91 towns and cities that do not have local historic districts.
