City Landmarks Commission
The City Planning Commission works in partnership with the Landmarks Commission, which ensures the preservation of historically and architecturally significant buildings and districts in the City of Cleveland. The Commission does this by designating landmarks and reviewing new development and property alterations in designated areas. The Landmarks Commission is advised by a network of local advisory committees.
The Commission’s office is located in Room 516 on the 5th floor of City Hall. The Commission meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month at 9 a.m. in City Hall, Room 514.
