Commission Responsibilities

The Rock Island Preservation Commission was created in 1984 for the purpose of identifying such property, structures or areas within the City of Rock Island, Illinois that are historically significant.

The Preservation Commission performs the landmark designation of significant property, structures and historic districts and advises the City Council if such designations are appealed. It is the duty of the Preservation Commission to protect the distinctive visual characteristics of landmarks and historic districts by reviewing, giving advice and passing upon changes to their exterior architectural appearance. The Preservation Commission also takes a lead role in educating the public as regards the architectural and historical heritage of our community.

Certificate of Appropriateness applications are available at City Hall, second floor and online.
