National Register/Local Historic District Design Review Guideline Manual Update The City is updating its National Register/Local Historic District Design Review Guidelines Manual. This document provides guidelines based on the Secretary of Interior’s Standards, for rehabilitation of buildings located within the National and Local historic districts in the City of Tarpon Springs. This manual was last updated in 1999. A draft document is available for download here. THE PUBLIC IS INVITED TO PROVIDE COMMENTS ON THIS DOCUMENT. HERE’S HOW TO COMMENT: Send an email of your comments to planning@ctsfl.us Mail your comments to the Planning and Zoning Department at P.O. Box 5004, Tarpon Springs, FL 34688 Drop off your written comments at the front lobby of City Hall, 324 East Pine Street, Tarpon Springs, FL 34689 COMMENTS SHOULD BE SUBMITTED BY FRIDAY, MAY 15, 2020. ********** The historic resources of Tarpon Springs are a vital ingredient of the city’s unique sense of place. Without the individuality of the city’s historic structures and National Register Historic District, Tarpon Springs would appear indistinguishable from other communities. The Historic Resources Element (Chapter) in the Tarpon Springs Comprehensive Plan outlines the programs, incentives and methods available to the Community. The element provides for establishment of administrative procedures to review and mitigate the impact of future development on prehistoric and historic resources. The element encourages the adoption of legal and financial incentives for preservation, as well as educational and informational programs designed to inform residents of the city’s historic and cultural heritage. Also, the element promotes communication and cooperation among Federal, State, city and private organizations involved in the historic preservation process. In 1990 the city adopted the Historic Resources Ordinance and established a local Historic District which incorporated the National Register Historic District and created the Heritage Preservation Board (HPB) to maintain the historic charm and character of Tarpon Springs. The HPB reviews proposed improvements and modifications to structures located in the historic district through the Certificate of Approval process. The board uses design guidelines and adopted standards in the city’s Land Development Code to review any construction, alteration, restoration or rehabilitation that requires a building permit and affects the exterior appearance of buildings in the district.
