The Preservation Commission of the Town of Irondequoit was formed in 2001 to preserve and protect historic sites in the town of Irondequoit. It processes application from people interested in listing their homes and other buildings as local historic sites.
This listing protects structures from inappropriate structural changes and demolition. The commission also offers advice on preserving such structures. The criteria for such listings are set by the State Office of Historic Preservation and the National Park Service of the United States. The commission also has the power to unilaterally list an historic building that the Commission believes is in danger of demolition without the consent of the owners if necessary. Those interested in listing their historic buildings should contact the Town Historian at 336-7269
The group meets at 7:30pm on the fourth Monday of the month in the First Floor Conference Room at the Irondequoit Town Hall.
