The Landmarks Commission Historic Structure Plaque Program offers the opportunity for owners of local landmarks structures or structures located within local historic preservation districts the ability to visually identify their home or building as meeting a high standard of historic preservation. The structure's exterior must be properly maintained in accordance with its historic style and character and meet requirements based on the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation.
