Historic Zoning Commission

The Historic Zoning Commission promotes the identification, evaluation, rehabilitation, adaptive reuse, and restoration of the Town's historic, architectural and archaeological resources through the enforcement of the Historic District Overlay.  It is the purpose of the Historic District Overlay to provide for the protection and enhancement of resources which represent distinctive and significant elements of Nolensville's history and identity and insure the harmonious and orderly integration of new development within these historic resources.
