Historic District Commission

The Beverly Historic Districts Commission oversees Beverly's Fish Flake Hill Local Historic District, reviewing proposed construction and alterations that affect exterior architectural features of buildings within the district and issuing a determination with respect to such projects. The Commission also fulfills the responsibilities of a historical commission, overseeing the City's Demolition Delay Ordinance and serving as an advisory body on historic preservation-related issues and projects.  The Commission reviews and provides recommendations on subjects including (but not limited to) the inventory and documentation of historic resources; the nomination of places within the city to the National Register of Historic Places; new development or redevelopment projects that will impact significant historic resources; and public outreach efforts regarding historic preservation.
