Historic District Guidelines

Guidelines for Property Owners in Troy's Historic Districts

Congratulations! You are the owner of a property in one of Troy's historic districts. Or perhaps you are thinking of buying a house or commercial property in a neighborhood that has been designated as a historic district. A growing number of people are choosing to invest in Troy's architectural heritage, and with good reason. Living or working in a neighborhood with historic significance and a palpable sense of place offers satisfactions that are reflected in rising property values. But preserving and enhancing the quality of our historic districts is a responsibility for the City of Troy, especially for the property owners in those districts.
