The historic preservation program works to protect and enhance historic buildings, sites, and neighborhoods in Littleton. City staff members work closely with the Historical Preservation Board to identify and designate eligible properties for historic landmark designation. To protect landmarks, the City reviews and approves exterior alterations to properties designated as historic.
