Historic Review Board

The Eugene Historic Review Board

In 1975, to help accomplish its historic preservation goals, the City of Eugene established a seven member historic review board (HRB).

  • Moving of historic landmark buildings
  • Demolition of historic landmark buildings
  • Appeals of historic alteration and demolition permits
In addition to these duties, the board also advises staff on the City's

  • Historic considerations related to other planning efforts
  • Education and outreach efforts
  • Preservation incentive programs
