Wausau Historic Preservation Commission

Wausau Historic Preservation Commission

Originally named the Wausau Historic Landmarks Commission, the Wausau Historical Preservation Commission was formed in 1975 when the Common Council adopted an ordinance forming the Commission. At that time, the Commission was responsible for designating certain buildings as historic landmarks. However, they did not have the authority to protect significant buildings from destruction or regulate changes to the exterior appearance of these buildings. In 1993, a new Historic Landmarks Ordinance was created allowing the Commission to not only designate certain properties as landmarks and groups of properties as historic districts, but it also provided a new and powerful historic preservation tool - the authority to formally review and act accordingly on requests by property owners to alter or demolish designated landmarks and buildings within historic districts.
