Information about how to designate a home as a historic landmark is now just a click away.
The new website preserveburbank.com outlines what the city offers regarding historic preservation, said Greg Rehner, founder of Preserve Burbank, a grassroots organization set up to share potential preservation opportunities with local property owners.
The site features links to applications to begin the historic designation process for individual homes, or to sign up to possibly receive a property tax deduction through the Mills Act, which provides tax abatements for historic properties.
City Council members recently approved guidelines for establishing historic districts — an application for which will be on the website once the paperwork is finalized, Rehner said.
There is also a link to take a visual tour around the city that features homes that have been designated as historic, are in the designation process, or have the potential to be considered historically significant.
