Historic Preservation Committee


• Phone: (408) 354-6874

In a town such as Los Gatos, blessed with Victorian homes and a quaint downtown, preservation is a valuable planning tool. Saving historically significant buildings increases property values, revitalizes commercial districts, and fosters a sense of community pride. Recognizing the value of Los Gatos’ historic resources, the Town Council adopted a Landmark Historic Preservation Ordinance and created the town’s Historic Preservation Committee. Enabling Resolution

The Historic Preservation Committee advises the Planning Commission, the Development Review Committee, and the Director of Community Development concerning the historic preservation of residential and commercial structures. The committee may approve minor residential alterations to historic structures as permitted by the Town Code.

The five-member committee consists of two Planning Commission members and three members of the public appointed by the Town Council. Appointees hafe demonstrated interest, competence, or knowledge in historic preservation.

Meetings are held in the Town Council Chambers at 110 E. Main St. on the fourth Wednesday of the month at 4 p.m. (During the pandemic, all meetings are held via teleconference.)
