About the Commission
Since the early 90s the Community Redevelopment Agency, the Historic Preservation Commission and the owners in the Historic District have been working together to restore the city to its original beauty.
It was with this great heritage in mind that in 1990 the Sebring City Council passed Ordinance #824 creating the Historic Preservation Commission. It is the duty of this Commission to protect the architectural resources of our city from demolition, neglect and inappropriate renovation, and to provide assistance to those who own properties within the district desiring to rehabilitate or modify the exterior of their building.
The commission’s purpose is to promote the educational, cultural and economic welfare of the public by setting standards for changes in the historic district.
The commission will assist you with local historic property designations and national register listing, information on Federal investment tax credits and financial incentives. An approved building materials list which will meet the State of Florida and City of Sebring historic guidelines is available upon request.
