The Philadelphia Historical Commission is now empowered to designate eligible interiors to the Philadelphia Register of Historic Pla ces after Mayor Nutter signed City Council Bill No. 080527 into law. This important amendment to the City’s preservation ordinance was the result of the initiative and perseverance of Councilman Bill Green who introduced the bill, obtained co-sponsors and worked with a variety of different groups to refine and obtain passage of the bill.
The Preservation Alliance, Friends of the Boyd  and the AIA Philadelphia Historic Preservation Committee invite you to attend a reception honoring Councilman Green for his efforts.
This is event is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required.
To register: info@preservationalliance.com or 215.546.1146 x3.
Eligible interiors are those that are open to the public as part of normal business operations or were designed originally to be open to the public. Interiors of private residential spaces are specifically excluded. The Historical Commission approved revised rules and regulations regarding procedures for nominating historic interiors in December 2009. After review by the City Records Department, the measure will go into effect on approximately February 1, 2010. Click here to read the final draft rules and regulations.
Come help us celebrate this important advancement of historic preservation law in Philadelphia!
