The Historic Review Board (HRB) meets monthly to review applications for alterations to buildings. including signs within the historic district in downtown Elgin. Read more about Historic Downtown Elgin

The HRB is responsible for reviewing all proposed changes within the district. Storefront restorations, sidewalk replacement and new signs are examples of projects that require review. Anything that alters the appearances of a building within the district or a part of the district, that is visible from the street or the public right of way, must be reviewed by the Historic Review Board. 

Their primary goal is to maintain the historic integrity of structures within the district thereby preserving this living piece of history. Board members are appointed by the City Council to serve a 3-year term. They participate in informal training related to historic preservation and architecture 1 to 3 times per year. The Texas Historic Commission Main Street Center is frequently utilized for expert advice. Elgin Main Street is Nationally Recognized for Performance (Washington, D.C. recognized annually since 1999).
