Historic Preservation Commission
The Fairport Historic Preservation Commission (FHPC) is charged with the implementation of the Fairport Historic Preservation Law passed in June of 2007.
The Commission seeks to protect, enhance, and perpetuate Fairport's landmarks and historic districts in a manner consistent with our changing society. And by so doing promote the economic, cultural, educational, and general welfare of the Village of Fairport and its residents.
Since its establishment in October 2007, the FHPC has developed a consistent set of procedures for a designation process, to ensure proper consideration of individual properties, and to preserve structures that provide architectural beauty and significance to the area.
Please note that Landmark Designation applies to the exterior of a building visible from the public right of way. This law is designed to be flexible and a landmark property owner may apply for a certificate of appropriateness to make exterior alterations to his property.
Volunteer Commission & Meetings
The FHPC is a volunteer commission comprised of five members: the Chair of the Commission - Doris Davis-Fritsch, Charles Smith, John Wierzbicki, and Jean Whitney.
Unless there is a holiday, meetings of the Commission are held at 6:30 P.M. on the first Thursday of each month at the Fairport Municipal Commission at 43 Liftbridge Lane East and are open to the public.
