Historic Preservation Commission

Historic Preservation Commission

The Paulsboro Historic Preservation Commission (PHPC) was established in the Fall of 2021.

Historic Preservation embodies the public appreciation and respect for those parts of the built, natural, and cultural environment that bear witness to the local, state, and national heritage. In essence, historic preservation is the method by which local governments, businesses, property owners, residents, institutions, and visitors join together to take pride in their collective history as well as the community’s unique character and identity. Historic properties, cultural assets, and natural resources are fragile when left unprotected and uncelebrated so they often fall prey to deterioration, demolition, and irreversible alteration.

The PHPC serves as an advisory group to the Land Use Board as well as Mayor and Council. Members of the Historic Preservation Commission serve as volunteers with the Borough providing secretarial support and legal advice as needed.
