Historic Preservation District Commission

The City of Frankenmuth’s Historic Preservation District Commission (HDC) is unique. It focuses both on recognition of existing or found historic character, but also specifically encourages the incorporation and adoption of architecture that complements the City’s Bavarian heritage. Further, substantial changes have been made to structures within the City’s Historic Preservation District prior to and since its creation in the late 1970’s.  The overwhelming intent of the HDC is to encourage preservation and restoration whenever possible, while permitting property owners the opportunity to restore, rehabilitate and construct when other alternatives are not reasonable. 

Meeting Information
The Commission shall meet at least semi-annually, and/or at the call of the Chairman or Secretary whenever matters are referred to it by the City Building Inspector. Meetings are held in the upper level of the City & Township Government Center. Please call 989-652-9901 for any questions.
