Title 21: Historic Preservation
Title 21 of the Belvedere Municipal Code was established to protect and preserve significant sites and structures that impart a distinct aspect and ambiance of the City, serving as visible reminders of the historical heritage of the Belvedere. A site or structure must fit specific criteria in order to be considered as having historical significance. This includes satisfying three or more of the listed criteria found under Section 21.20.07 of the Municipal Code. Title 21 also established the Historic Preservation Committee and its authority to review applications for changes to local Belvedere historic properties, review applications to designate new historic properties, and implement the Mills Act tax abatement program.
