Historic Preservation Commission
The Historic Preservation Commission will postpone the April 8 meeting until Wednesday, May 13, due to a lack of quorum and in hopes that CDC guidelines will allow for larger groups at that time.

History and Purpose
The City of Tuscaloosa Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) was formed in fall 2004. It was created to ensure that Tuscaloosa’s historic resources are maintained in a manner appropriate to the city’s heritage. The HPC provides primary guidance in the planning and design of projects that are sympathetic to the special character of the historic districts.

The HPC normally meets on the second Wednesday of each month. The purpose of these meetings is to review applications for Certificates of Appropriateness for work being done to properties in historic districts.
Meetings are held in the City Council Chamber on the second floor of City Hall.
