Improvements and restorations of historically significant properties in the city will once again be considered to be a part of a financial incentive program that will help property owners in the City of Long Beach.
Eligible properties within the city’s designated historic districts can qualify for tax incentives to maintain and preserve buildings recognized as historic landmarks or properties.
In order to preserve and restore historic properties, this reinstated program is made possible through the Mills Act, a California law that allows cities and municipalities to offer incentives to property owners.
Virtually any remodeling project will have to go through an extensive review process if your home is located in any of these historic neighborhoods. It can take many months to complete if the process is done improperly.
Even interior work, such as kitchen remodels, requires special attention when the home is located in a historic district. Something as simple as a window made from the wrong material or painted the wrong color can delay or prolong your restoration and even incur steep fines.
The lengthy bureaucratic screening focuses on all aspects of your house, including structure, appearance, materials, and even landscaping. If the home is approved, it will result in a Certificate of Appropriateness from the Cultural Heritage Commission. Obtaining this is an absolute necessity to start work on a Long Beach Historic district construction project!
