Historic Preservation

The Buffalo Preservation Board reviews all exterior changes to landmark properties or properties located within City of Buffalo Preservation Districts as per Chapter 337 of City of Buffalo Code. If the proposed work is a small repair or an in-kind replacement, a staff-level review may be possible. If not, the project will be reviewed at an upcoming Preservation Board meeting. The preservation Board uses the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation and Guidelines for Rehabilitating Historic Buildings as its guidelines. A copy can be found online at
