Anniston Historic Preservation Commission

The Anniston Historic Preservation Commission's ordinance and bylaws mandate promotion of the educational, economic, cultural and general welfare of the City through the preservation and protection of buildings, sites, structures, areas and districts of historic significance and interest. This Commission helps to facilitate a system for the designation, protection, preservation and rehabilitation of historic properties in historic districts, and to participate in federal and state programs created and designed to achieve the same goals in the City. The AHPC has many functions such as recommending to the City Council specific places, districts, sites, buildings, structures or objects to be designated as historic properties or districts. The AHPC is authorized to develop and conduct educational programs on historic properties located within the city and on general historic preservation activities.  The Commission is comprised of nine (9) members who are all appointed by the City Council.

The Commission meets the third Thursday of each month at 8:30 a.m. A full list of 2017 meeting dates can be found here. Each meeting is held in the Former Council Chambers at City Hall located at 1128 Gurnee Avenue in Anniston.
