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.
