Historic Preservation Commission
The Belleville Historic Preservation Commission was formed in 1972 by City ordinance to assist in integrating preservation principles into all community wide planning efforts. The concern of the Commission at its inception, and still today, lies exclusively with the enhancement and perpetuation of Belleville’s historic neighborhoods and landmark buildings.  

Due to City Hall renovations, meetings have been temporarily relocated.
