Historic Preservation

Placemaking is a key element of implementing Denton Plan 2030 in terms of harnessing and celebrating Denton’s sense of place. Encouraging historic preservation, identifying historic districts, landmarks, and character areas is an important step in continuing to ensure the longevity of the City’s character and the strength of its economy. Historic sites, neighborhoods and districts abound in our City, including:

Bell Avenue Conservation District

Oak-Hickory Historic District

West Oak Historic District

Certificate of Appropriateness

The Historic Preservation Officer may administratively approve a Certificate of Appropriateness for work that is considered ordinary maintenance or minor alteration.
