Individuals that plan to construct or modify a structure within the Independence Historic District should contact the City of Independence. A review of the revisions may be necessary.
To find out the review process, please contact Fred Evander, Community Planner, at (503) 837-1168.
Historic review is not required:
- When there is no change in the appearance or material composition of the existing structure.
- When the repair or maintenance of the structure uses the same materials in the area being repaired.
- For interior alterations.
- For changes in paint color.
