The Auburn Historic Preservation Commission is intended to meet several essential needs. For the community, it assures that Auburn's historic resources are maintained in a manner appropriate to the City's heritage. For property owners, residents, and contractors, it provides primary guidance in the planning and design of projects that are sympathetic to the special character of the historic district and that will, in turn, assure that property values are maintained and enhanced.
