Much of Jefferson Park is now an Historic Preservation Overlay Zone!

CORRECTION: The Jefferson Park HPOZ is about 42% of Jefferson Park. The HPOZ is from Adams to Exposition from the east side of Arlington to the west side of 7th Ave, and from Adams to the south side of Jefferson between Arlington and Western.


Jefferson Park is now a city Historic Preservation Overlay Zone! The city council passed the final motion on June 28, 2011, and the mayor signed it promptly. The HPOZ is now in place. Thanks to everyone who helped get the word out and gather community support. Our outreach efforts and high turn-out at our public meetings were huge successes for our community. Along with our great architectural heritage, Jefferson Park is already being noted as having one of the most inclusive HPOZs in the City with one of the strongest cultural history contexts.
