CLEVELAND HEIGHTS LANDMARKS

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS LANDMARKS

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS LANDMARKS are of two types, those designated on the national level and listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and those that have been designated locally. The local designations are done by the Cleveland Hts. Landmark Commission, which was created by ordinance in Oct. 1973. The commission's goal is to preserve and promote buildings, neighborhoods, works of art, and other objects of historical or architectural value in the community. The commission has 5 members appointed to 3-year terms by Cleveland Hts. City Council. Landmark nominations are made by commission members or by owners seeking designation for their properties. Approval of the Planning Commission, as well as the Landmark Commission, is required before a property is landmarked.
