Vision

The vision of the Southold Historic Preservation Commission is to ensure that the town’s essential character and historical significance are maintained through the preservation of its 17th, 18th, 19th and early 20th century architectural, historic and cultural treasures.

Mission

The mission of the Southold Historic Preservation Commission is to afford proper recognition to the town’s historic landmarks and to protect them from incompatible alterations or demolition. Doing so will maintain them for the continuing recognition, use, and enjoyment of current and future residents and visitors of the town.

The commission will meet these objectives by:

  • Emphasizing as a statement of local policy that the conservation, protection, enhancement, and preservation of local designated landmarks is necessary to promote the cultural, economic, educational, and general welfare of the town’s residents
  • Encouraging the identification and recognition of historic resources which represent distinctive elements of the town’s historic, architectural, and cultural heritage
  • Providing for the careful, thoughtful and informed evaluation of any proposed alteration, demolition, or removal of the visible facades of any designated local historic landmark
  • Promoting heritage tourism
