Providence to create Historic Landmarks District

Posted 7/23/14

PROVIDENCE – As part of the Providence’s recent zoning code revision, Mayor Angel Taveras said Wednesday the city will create a new Historic Landmarks District to aid preservation of historic properties that reflect the city’s cultural and architectural history.

Properties within the Providence Historic Landmarks District, which the city said would be mainly churches and residential buildings, will be protected under design review and demolition restrictions.

Owners of historic sites, such as those recognized by the Providence Preservation Society, can request that their properties be designated as Providence landmarks for inclusion in the new district by contacting the city’s Department of Planning and Development before Aug. 11, 2014.

“We are working creatively to preserve Providence’s historic architecture,” said Taveras in a release. “The new Providence Landmarks District will protect individual properties that have historic significance but that are not within local historic districts.”

The new historic district is Providence’s third, joining the Industrial and Commercial Buildings District and the Jewelry Local Historic District, which will also see changes under the city rezoning. The city plans to add about 30 properties to the Industrial and Commercial Buildings District, remove properties that have been demolished, and eliminate overlapping jurisdiction with the Providence Downtown Design Review Committee, according to the release from Taveras’ office.
