Historic Resource Survey

HPAC has completed an Historic Resource Survey. The intent is that this will be a "living" document that will be updated and added to as new information becomes available.

You can download the document by right-clicking on the title above, and saving to your own hard drive. It is in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format, and is quite large (5.7 M).

Historic Preservation Ordinances

On July 16, 2002, City Council approved Article XX.3 of the Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance, creating an historic preservation overlay district which could be applied to property in Carrollton.

On Tuesday, May 6, 2003, City Council approved the Carrollton Heights Historic District zoning ordinance, which provides for development regulations different than other residential districts.
