Design Guidelines

Commission Guidelines


The Preservation Commission has created guideline booklets to assist property owners in selecting appropriate and historically sensitive designs for their property sites, exterior alterations and new construction.
  • Residential (highly recommended for Rock Island Landmark and Highland Park Historic District property owners)
  • Downtown (highly recommended for Rock Island Landmark property owners)
In addition, a project in 1994-95 resulted in interesting new construction designs compatible for historic neighborhoods.
