Ypsilanti boasts one of the oldest and largest historic districts in Michigan, which encompasses both downtown and Depot Town, and the neighborhoods to the north and south of them.
The Historic District Commission (HDC) is an appointed citizen's board that reviews exterior modifications to structures ("resources") within the district; the purpose is not to revert things to The Way They Were, but to ensure that any changes are at least not detrimental to the character of the structure or the district.
The HDC meets twice monthly, on first and third Tuesday evenings, at City Hall. (The meetings happen roughly simultaneously with Ypsilanti City Council meetings.)
