Historic Preservation

Kalamazoo is the smallest of four cities in Michigan to employ a full time Historic Preservation Coordinator to advise and assist in a wide variety of projects from neighborhood planning to regulation of projects in the historic districts to helping property owners locate available tax credits and assistance. Kalamazoo is also one of twenty-three certified local governments in the state of Michigan. This designation makes the city eligible for grants that assist historic preservation related planning activities.  The Historic Preservation Coordinator supports the city of Kalamazoo's Historic Preservation Commission and Historic District Commission, as well as the Downtown Design Review Committee.

What's New:

The Historic Preservation Commission will be meeting on April 12, 2016 to talk about Western Michigan University's East Campus.  See more information here.
