Historic Preservation

Preservation Solutions Committee​ (2014-2017)

In response to several demolitions of several significant historic buildings in Downtown Dallas in the Fall of 2014, Mayor Mike Rawlings and City Council authorized the creation of a task force to look at the current programs, policies, and implementation of the city's historic preservation program. The goal of the committee was to evaluate the effectiveness of the program to protect Dallas' heritage while encouraging the management and growth of downtown and surrounding areas. In 2015, the Committee was instrumental in the creation of the Demolition Delay Overlay District.​ The Committee's appointment ended in August 2017.
