The Tempe Preservation Office assists owners in the preservation and restoration of their properties. Historic Preservation provides protection for significant properties and archaeological sites which represent important aspects of Tempe's heritage and enhances the character of the community by taking such properties and sites into account during development. Reasonable and fair regulations are included in the Tempe Historic Preservation Ordinance as a means of balancing the rights of property owners and the value to the community of these significant properties and sites. It is the intent of the city to make ownership of a landmark, historic property or property within an historic district as beneficial as possible.
