Public meetings

The Philadelphia Historical Commission and its committees hold public meetings online. At these meetings, they review building permit applications for work to historically designated properties, as well as matters related to historic designation.

Interested parties can comment in-person on matters before the Historical Commission. Or, comments may be submitted in writing at least seven days before the public meeting. Written remarks may be sent to preservation@phila.gov.

General resources

Our collections of archived meeting minutes and successful historic register nominations may also be of interest.
