Munjoy Hill Historic District Analysis
STATUS OF MUNJOY HILL HISTORIC DISTRICT PROPOSAL
On August 11, 2020, the Planning Board voted 4-3 to recommend to the City Council designation of the Munjoy Hill Historic District as proposed by the Historic Preservation Board and as shown on the map below. The Planning Board's recommendation was based on the majority's finding that a) the proposed district meets the designation criteria set forth in the historic preservation ordinance; and b) designation of a Munjoy Hill Historic District is not inconsistent with other aspects of the City's comprehensive plan (Portland's Plan 2030).
The next step in the review process is for the recommendations of both the Historic Preservation Board and Planning Board to be forwarded to the City Council for final consideration. The Council has the final authority to designate historic districts. The Council will also be taking up the Historic Preservation Board's recommendation to individually designate 6 historic structures that are located outside the boundaries of the proposed district. A date for Council deliberations has not yet been set, but will be posted on this website once scheduled. Owners of properties within the proposed district will also receive notification of the meeting.
Written comments should be submitted to email@example.com. If you have any questions, please contact Deb Andrews, Historic Preservation Program Manager by phone at (207) 874-8726 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be advised that all protections of the historic preservation ordinance are now in effect within the proposed historic district until such time the City Council makes a final decision on the recommended designation. In other words, historic preservation review is required for any proposed alteration, addition, demolition and/or new construction within the proposed district boundaries or affecting the individual structures recommended for landmark designation.
