What is the Historic Preservation Commission (HPC)?
The Albany-Dougherty Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) was established by the City and County Commissions to administer the Historic Preservation Ordinance, which was adopted in 1996.  The HPC is made up of citizens appointed by the City and County Commissions, who meet each month to review proposals for exterior alterations, new construction, and demolition of buildings in the Local Historic District.
