::   Identifying and designating properties of major significance encourages the preservation and protection of Miami's important historic, architectural, and archeological resources. The City of Miami's Historic Preservation (HP) Ordinance provides a process by which individual sites, historic districts, and archeological zones can be officially recognized.

Within the City of Miami, there are over 100 designated historic sites, districts and archeological zones. These designated properties include individual sites and districts (e.g. private homes, bridges, civic buildings, commercial and residential neighborhoods).

The links to the left provide information regarding the process for the designation of significant properties; the Historic Preservation Ordinance; and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about designations and the effects of designation.

The City of Miami provides assistance to owners of historically designated properties through an Ad Valorem Tax Exemption program and a Transfer of Development Rights program.  For more information please contact the Preservation Office.
