Historic Preservation Commission
The New Britain Historic Preservation Commission was formed under the City of New Britain’s Historic Preservation Ordinance, which was adopted and signed into law in September 2011. Under this ordinance, the Commission is charged with the responsibility of working to preserve and protect the historically distinctive buildings and places that make New Britain unique. These historical resources form a link to the past, provide beauty to our neighborhoods and our business areas, and serve as an important source of community pride and cultural identity.
The Historic Preservation Commission is committed to the premise that our historic and architectural preservation efforts will help to increase individual property values, improve our neighborhoods and encourage economic growth and revitalization in the City’s downtown and older business areas. In its primary preservation role, the Commission strives to become a helpful resource for historic property owners and to conduct historic reviews as a minimally intrusive part of the building permit process. The Commission is also invested in efforts to promote historic preservation, to educate and encourage participation and cooperation amongst historic property owners. By maintaining and improving your properties in accordance with the historic preservation guidelines, you are helping to make New Britain a beautiful place in which to live and do business.
