The Historic Zoning Commission (HZC) is composed of nine (9) citizen appointees who represent the discipline of architecture, history or historic preservation, the local planning commission, and the community in general. The mission of the HZC is to preserve and protect Franklin's historic resources through identification, designation, and design review.

When property owners intend to demolish or make exterior changes in material or design to buildings in the Historic Preservation Overlay (HPO), the HZC reviews the plans to see whether the requested changes would damage the historic value of the property or the district. Basing its review on adopted design guidelines, the city's zoning ordinance, and the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation, the HZC reviews and approves any exterior alterations in material or design.

For more information about the Historic Zoning Commission and the Certificate of Appropriateness review process, please visit our Historic Preservation Program page.

If you are considering exterior changes within the HPO, please contact Amanda Rose, City Preservation Planner, at 615.550.6737 or amanda.rose@FranklinTN.gov
