Historic Preservation

The Guttenberg Historic Preservation Commission has worked over the last nine months with Rebecca Lawin McCarley of SPARK Consulting to develop the Design Guidelines for Front St (River Park Dr) Historic District. The Design Guidelines are intended to assist property owners by offering suggestions for the best practices in maintenance or improvements for a historic building.  Property owners in a historic district are encouraged to complete rehabilitation work that is sympathetic to the historic features of the downtown.  The Design Guidelines are simply what they say – guidelines.  There will not be further requirements or rules that any property owner will need to follow. This project has been funded by a Certified Local Government (CLG) grant from the National Park Service and State Historic Preservation Office.
