The historic resources of Tarpon Springs are a vital ingredient of the  city’s unique sense of place. Without the individuality of the city’s  historic structures and National Register Historic District, Tarpon Springs would appear indistinguishable from other communities.   The Historic Resources Element (Chapter) in the Tarpon Springs  Comprehensive Plan outlines the programs, incentives and methods  available to the Community. The element provides for establishment of  administrative procedures to review and mitigate the impact of future  development on prehistoric and historic resources. The element  encourages the adoption of legal and financial incentives for  preservation, as well as educational and informational programs  designed to inform residents of the city’s historic and cultural heritage.  Also, the element promotes communication and cooperation among  Federal, State, city and private organizations involved in the historic  preservation process. In 1990 the city adopted the Historic Resources Ordinance and  established a local Historic District which incorporated the National  Register Historic District and created the Heritage Preservation Board  (HPB) to maintain the historic charm and character of Tarpon Springs.  The HPB reviews proposed improvements and modifications to  structures located in the historic district through the Certificate of  Approval process. The board uses design guidelines and adopted  standards in the city’s Land Development Code to review any  construction, alteration, restoration or rehabilitation that requires a  building permit and affects the exterior appearance of buildings in the  district.
