Expanding Historic Districts

Concord prides itself on its storied past and how it has preserved many of the structures and landscapes identified with its most famous people, moments, and cultural movements. The Town’s departments, commissions, and boards have worked diligently to protect historic and cultural resources through regulatory mechanisms and historic designations. Through these efforts, along with the work of an engaged citizenry and strong historical and cultural entities, Concord has retained its attractiveness, strong sense of place, and desirability as a place to live and visit. 

One of the goals identified in the 2018 Comprehensive Long Range Plan is to consider sensible but robust expansion of existing local historic districts into contiguous areas.The Concord Historic Districts Commission is committed to this goal, and has begun exploring the possible expansion of the Main Street Historic District. 

The Commission will be conducting public outreach as the project moves forward, however if you have any questions please feel free to contact Senior Planner, Heather Gill at hgill@concordma.gov
