Learn all about Portland's Historic Districts
and what it means to homeowners and developers!

Portland has eleven local historic districts and if you own property or are thinking about owning property in one of those districts do you know exactly what that means?  With this program you’ll learn the guidelines that govern exterior changes along with the criteria for construction and renovations. In addition, this program will describe the designation process for landmark buildings and historic districts.

The program will conclude with a walk in one of the first local historic districts in Portland – the Western Promenade – where a variety of residential styles are represented.

This program qualifies for 3 MREC approved CEU credits.
