The Historic Preservation Commission

Properties which qualify for designation as historic districts are geographically definable areas which contain buildings, structures, sites, objects, and landscape features, or a combination thereof, which:

  • ​Have special character or special historic or aesthetic value or interest; or 
  • Represent one or more periods, styles or types of architecture typical of one or more eras in the history of the city, county, state or region; and 
  • Cause such areas by reason of such factors, to constitute a visibly perceptible section of the city.
The Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) is composed of nine members appointed by Mayor and Council. Each member of the HPC serves a period of three years. The HPC makes recommendations to Mayor and Council on specific places, sites, districts, buildings and structures to be designated by ordinance as historic properties or historic districts.  

The HPC reviews applications for Certificates of Appropriateness (COA) when a property owner proposes to make material changes to the appearance of an historic property within either of Covington’s historic districts.


The Historic Preservation Commissions meets at 6:00 p.m., on the first Wednesday of each month.  All meetings are held in the Planning & Zoning Conference Room at 2116 Stallings Street.
