Historic Preservation Commission (HPC)

Working to Preserve the City's Diverse Past

Monterey’s heritage is rich with resources. We have artifacts and remnants that reveal stories of other times and other eras. The Native Americans who first settled here. The Spanish and Mexicans who once governed the area. The transition of Alta California to statehood. The Cannery Row when sardine was king.

The Historic Preservation Commission is the steward of Monterey's heritage.

What does the HPC deal with?

The Commission oversees restoration of the City’s historic structures and recommends policies to the City Council. In addition, the Commission is leading the way in revising the City’s historic preservation ordinance and developing programs to encourage property owners of 19th- and 20th-century buildings to designate their structure as historic.
