How will I know if the type of work I am planning is appropriate for my property?
Design guidelines for designated districts are available from the Planning Department. Contact city staff for a copy of the guidelines that apply to your district 417.864.1611. City staff and the Landmarks Board can also provide technical assistance and access to many publications that can assist property owners in project planning (i.e. mortar replacement in historic buildings, new exterior additions, repair of wooden windows, conserving energy, etc.). Technical Preservation Briefs are developed by the US Department of the Interior, and are available for sale at the address below. The City of Springfield Planning Department is also available to assist you in obtaining a list of Preservation Briefs.
