Pleasant Hill, Missouri
Historic Preservation
The area known as downtown is currently protected by a historic preservation ordinance that was enacted in June of 2000.

The purpose of this ordinance is to promote the protection and enhancement of buildings, structures or land improvements of special historic, aesthetic or architectural significance. The ordinance is governed by a preservation commission made up of five members acting in an advisory capacity to the city council and the planning and zoning commission. The commission both proposes designations as a historic landmark and/or Historic District and issues certificates of appropriateness relating to proposed actions affecting the exterior architectural appearance of any landmark or property within a historic district.

Before any exterior modifications are done on buildings within the district, an application for a certificate of appropriateness must be completed and filed at city hall. City hall staff will be happy to assist the property owner with the completion of this form. The application will be reviewed by the Historic Preservation Commission at their regular meeting (normally the first Monday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at city hall) or at a special meeting.

Publications containing historic architectural guidelines are available at city hall. Once approved, the certificate of appropriateness should be posted at front of the building and work will be subject to periodic inspection by the building official.
