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. 

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

Jennie Dugan Road Historic District Survey

This survey is for owners of properties located within the proposed boundaries of the proposed Jennie Dugan Road Local Historic District. Renters and other interested parties may also answer the survey, however, your answers will be taken into consideration separately. 

The survey is one of the first steps in the local historic district expansion process by the Town of Concord’s Historic Districts Commission. Designation helps to protect and celebrate a neighborhood’s rich history. It also provides an effective and transparent design review process that preserves the neighborhood’s historic character. 

This survey can be accessed here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/777VK79..

Please respond to survey by September 18, 2020.
