Definitions for "HISTORIC DISTRICT"
That area of a city deemed as historic to the city and, therefore, usually protected through restrictions so as to set off its uniqueness.
A defined geographical area that may be as small as a few contiguous buildings, or as large as an entire neighborhood, business district, or community. Within this district are historic properties associated with a particular time or theme in a community's history. Often the collective significance of the district is greater than any one building or archaeological site.
An area, or a group of areas not necessarily having contiguous boundaries, that contains one resource or a group of resources that are related by history, architecture, archaeology, culture or engineering. A local historic district is an area established by a local ordinance which regulates the construction, alteration, and demolition of resources in the district.
