Just wondering how others enforce histoirc regulatations in a CBD. We have a problem with getting people to fix problems. BUT then again, our historic board approved a paper sign.

you can try to enforce all you want.. nothing will occur until you get the city council or historic preservation commission to address or reaffirm the need to correct the violations in historic districts.. then you have a lot more leg to stand on when you perform your inspections......

or.. if the town already reconizes the value of the historic districts, you can just start noticing people, explain the code.. have a 'other business' chat with the historic commission and remind them of the goals of the ordinance, the requirements of the ordinance, and their duties as historic preservation commission members.

Boiker is right, plus you need to have some very wealthy preservationists holding the City Council to the fire everytime they overuled the Historic Districts Landmarks Commission.
