Three sources of general information about Historic Properties are available.
The Forms in this Section of the Historic Preservation web site are the forms necessary to nominate a property as an Historic Landmark, or to nominate an area as an Historic District. A property owner wishing to nominate their property as a Landmark could print out the “Nomination for Historic Landmark” form, fill it out, and submit the form to the City Clerk at City Hall to start the process. The same is true for an Historic District.
The Certificate of Appropriateness is the form given to the property owner of an historic property by the KHPC that allows him to complete renovations, alterations, or remodeling of the historic property. This would be for work that is above and beyond that of “ordinary maintenance”.
The Certificate of Economic Hardship is for the property owner that has applied for a Certificate of Appropriateness, and was turned down by the Kirksville Historic Preservation Commission. If economic considerations are preventing the landowner from performing changes to the structure that would be approved by the KHPC, he can apply for the Certificate of Economic Hardship.
