Department » CodeNEXT » FAQ » Is it possible to resort to the current terminology, “Historic Landmark” and “Historic District” instead of the new terminology, “Historic Landmark Overlay Zone and Historic Area Overlay Zone”? The two new phrases are too similar.
The existing Code identifies these as Combining Districts, and they function similarly to an overlay zone in the proposed code. We can review and determine how these should best be referred to. Currently the proposal is to continue to use H and HD (rather than HOZ and HDOZ). Open to working with the City to modify as needed for clarity.
