Historic Preservation Commission
The Orange County Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) guides the designation of historic sites and provides preservation policy recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC). Orange County's Historic Preservation Plan (Historic Preservation Element of the Comprehensive Plan) was adopted in 1996, in an effort to preserve Orange County's rich historical character.
The Historic Preservation Commission is a citizen advisory board comprised of 7 members, appointed by the Board of County Commissioners. Appointment for some positions requires experience or expertise in the field of architecture and historic preservation.
The Historic Preservation Commission meets on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. Meetings are held at the Old Orange County Courthouse 106 E. King Street, Hillsborough, NC.
