Historic Preservation CommISSION
The Village's Historic Preservation Commission is made up of persons qualified through their knowledge and experience in historic preservation (trained and working preservation specialists, architects, and/or historians) to evaluate proposals for new work involving historic properties within the Village's historic district. Their decisions are based on objective criteria articulated in Village Code Chapter 75. Their goals are to protect the integrity of historic buildings and properties in the Village, especially those within the Village's historic overlay district; to protect and preserve for the long term elements in the Village which are distinctive in Kinderhook’s historic, architectural, and cultural heritage; to foster civic pride in accomplishments of the past; and to protect the Village's attractiveness for residents, businesses, and visitors. With the HPC's guidance, the Village continues to support and stimulate the local economy, insuring harmonious, orderly, and efficient growth and development in the Village.
The Historic Preservation Commission meets at 7:00pm on the third Thursday of every month. Please click here to read the minutes.
