The Ocilla Historic Preservation Standards are designed to provide guidance for protecting the heritage of the community. These standards describe the purpose, tax incentives, and how the standards will be used. They also give an overview of the Historic Preservation Commission’s (HPC) Role in historic preservation. In addition, the process for obtaining a Certificate of Appropriateness (COA) is outlined. The Department of Interior Design Standards are included to assist the property owner and the HPC in completing projects.
