Preservation Information

The New York State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) works with communities to help preserve important community resources.  In 2011 the Town of Vestal received a grant for a town-wide Reconnaissance Level Historic Resources Survey.  The survey identified building and sites throughout the community that meet the criteria for designation as a local, State, or National landmark. It is this survey that guides the Vestal Historic Preservation Commission. 

Certified Local Governments
Communities such as Vestal, who fulfill specific requirements, become eligible to become a Certified Local Government (CLG). 
CLGs have passed a local law or Historic Preservation Ordinance that establilshes a Historic Preservation Commission and defines the laws that commission is responsible for upholding.  
The following documents and links provide useful preservation information:

If you have questions about Vestal's Historic Preservation Ordinance or about preservation in general, please contact the Commission through or attend a Commission meeting.
