Remodeling & Renovation
Since Stuart is a registered Historic District, preserving the architecture, character, and historical significance of homes in our neighborhood is essential.
The City of Kalamazoo Historic District Commission (HDC) provides official Standards & Guidelines to help homeowners maintain their properties. Some projects – signage, replacement, demolition, or addition – require HDC approval.
Before starting a home improvement project:
Check the Historic District Standards & Guidelines
Contact Sharon Ferraro, the Historic Preservation Coordinator at (269) 337-8804 to describe your project.
Submit an online application for HDC review if advised.
