Due to COVID-19, the next regular Historic District Commission Meeting on June 2 will be held remotely via Zoom.
The Historic District Commission generally meets the first Tuesday of each month at 5 p.m. at City Hall, 270 S River Avenue in the 2nd Floor Training Room.
Occasionally the date and room location may change, due to holidays and events. Please visit the calendar to confirm the date and location each month, or call the department of Community & Neighborhood Services at 616-355-1330.
Come July, the Historic District Commission will have an open spot.
The Commission regularly meets the first Tuesday of each month at 5:00 p.m. (usually for 1 ½ - 2 hours) with an occasional special meeting and periodic opportunities for training in preservation issues. The primary functions of the Commission are to review requests for Certificates of Appropriateness submitted by residents and contractors for proposed work on the exterior of properties within the historic districts; review of properties throughout the community as to historic significance and potential designation under the preservation ordinance; and to learn about and educate the community about the importance and significance of our historic resources.
