Why does St. Charles have a Historic Preservation ordinance?

The ordinance protects significant historic and architectural resources and can delay or stop demolitions or inappropriate alterations.  Such changes can result in the loss of the community’s historic and architectural character and heritage.  Inappropriate changes can have a negative impact on the property values and architectural integrity of all the properties within the historic district.

For more information please visit the Historic Preservation  page on the City's website.
