Demolition Control Zone

The demolition control zone protects Paducah's historic properties.  Before any building can be torn down in this zone, the applicant must submit a letter of intent and development plans to the Planning Director for review by a committee.  The committee consists of the Planning Director, the Chief Building Inspector, and the Chairperson of the Historic and Architectural Review Commission.  A majority vote from this committee must be obtained before any building in this zone can be razed.
