These guidelines should be consulted by anyone planning exterior changes to a home in these historic districts, or building a new home here. Thus home owners, architects, builders in these historic districts should consider these guidelines before proposing changes.

The City of Houston Historic Preservation staff and Houston Archaeological and Historical Committee will be using these in approving or rejecting Certificates of Compliance (COA’s). Thus, everyone is using a uniform set of guidelines when looking at changes. This should make the entire process more uniform, transparent and workable.

The Houston Heights Preservation Guidelines are Below

Each one of these sections is a printable pdf covering the 9 sections.

Note: These Houston Heights Preservation Guidelines are draft, not final. They will be presented for comment at the Heights Fire Station and eventually approved with any changes by the City Council.
