Talbot County, Maryland

Historic Preservation Commission

The Talbot County Council has long recognized the importance of saving its historic resources.  In 1976 the County Council passed the Talbot County Historic District Ordinance to safeguard and preserve the rich heritage of the County by protecting historic properties and scenic landscapes.  The Talbot County Historic District Commission was created at that time to administer the regulations set forth in that ordinance. 
The Commission, now called the Historic Preservation Commission, consists of seven County residents appointed by the County Council for three-year terms.  They are appointed on the basis of qualifications in architecture, history, historic preservation, advocacy, etc., according to standards established by State and Federal programs.
The Commissioners’ areas of interest are the villages and rural properties in the County, and County-owned resources.  Among its activities are the establishment of Historic District Overlay Zones, review of exterior modification to District properties and the nomination of properties for the National Register of Historic Places.
TheTalbot County Historic Preservation Commission holds its regular monthly meetings in Conference Room 1, in the County office building at 215 Bay Street, Easton. Meetings are held on the first Monday of each month at 3 PM. In the event of County holidays meetings are scheduled for the second Monday.  Commission agendas, minutes and other items are posted on this page. Public participation is welcomed and encouraged.  Resolutions and proceedings are part of the public record.
