This Commission declares as a matter of public
policy, that the preservation, protection, perpetuation and use of
areas, places, building structures and other objects having special
historical interest or value is a public necessity. It is our intent
to interpret the history and architecture of Farmington and attempt to
preserve our valuable past. We will act as an educator to the general
public, as a resource and guide for persons within the historical
district and to help Farmington residents develop a sense of place.
The Commission makes recommendations to the
Farmington City Council regarding the preservation, protection and
use of historic buildings, sites, structures, objects and districts
for the education and general welfare of the people of the city
according to Title 2, Chapter 11 of the City Code.
