San Francisco Historic Preservation Commission
Category : Commission or Committee
The Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) is a seven-member body advises the Mayor, City Council and City departments on San Francisco's historic preservation goals, policies and programs.
All members are nominated by the Mayor and subject to the approval of the Board of Supervisors. The Commission advises the Mayor, Board of Supervisors and City departments on San Francisco’s historic preservation goals, policies and programs. It recommends buildings and places that are historically or culturally significant to the heritage of San Francisco for designation by the Board of Supervisors.
Once designated, the commission helps regulate those resources during the permit review and entitlement process to protect our heritage while ensuring that preservation is used as a tool to promote growth, revitalization, and the appreciation of our diverse neighborhoods.
