Heritage Preservation

Heritage Resources - Designated Districts


The City of Plano currently has two locally designated heritage districts. The Haggard Park Heritage District, designated in 1999, is primarily residential and is comprised of houses built from the late 1800s to the early 1950s. Plano’s second heritage district is the Downtown heritage district, designated in 2002. This district is commercial with most of its structures dating from the 1890s. A map of these districts is provided below.

Heritage Resources - Designated Sites

Plano's heritage resources are those buildings, sites, or districts that have been officially recognized as culturally and architecturally significant by the Heritage Commission, the Planning & Zoning Commission, and City Council. Properties may be individually designated or designated as part of a heritage district. Property owners may initiate the designation of a property or district by submitting a complete application for heritage resource designation to the Heritage Preservation Officer.

Requests for local designation must be approved by the Heritage Commission, Planning & Zoning Commission, and City Council.
