Montclair Historic Preservation Commission
Department of Planning

Montclair Historic Preservation Commission (MHPC), established by ordinance in 1994, is responsible for protecting Montclair's architectural heritage and increasing public awareness of the unique historical and cultural dimensions of the Township's buildings, streetscapes and landscapes. In accordance with the State Municipal Land Use Law, the commission surveys buildings, structures, objects, sites and districts located within the Township and researches and evaluates them for their historic significance. The commission proposes to the Township Council those properties it has found to be worthy of landmark designation and therefore subject to the Township's Historic Preservation Commission Ordinance. The Commission also advises the Planning Board and the Township Council on all matters which have potential impact on the historic buildings, structures, objects, sites or districts in the Township or on the physical character and ambience of any portion of the Township or region. There are currently three locally landmarked historic districts: Town Center Historic District, Upper Montclair Historic District, and the Pine Street Historic District. The Commission reviews and approves changes to properties within these districts and to all other local historic landmark properties.
