Implement a Demolition Delay or Demolition Review Law

Peoria, IL

Demolition laws are used in some municipalities, regardless of adopted historic preservation ordinances, to prevent the demolition of existing buildings without a thorough review. The focus of the ordinance is demolition and may not be directly tied to Historic Preservation Ordinances, so design control is limited. To establish a legal foundation for this type of ordinance, Demolition Ordinances should be based on historic preservation criteria, which is similar to what would be required with a Local Historic District designation.
