Historic Preservation

The Historic Preservation Ordinance for the City of Elmhurst was adopted in 2006. The ordinance provides a mechanism for the identification, designation and protection of buildings and other sites determined to be of historical or architectural significance to the City.  If you are interested in learning more about the landmark designation process for your property please contact the City Planner at (630) 530-3121.

The Historic Preservation Commission is an advisory Commission that functions to review potential landmarks, conduct surveys of areas with historical and architectural significance and provide information on the historic and architectural heritage of the City.
