How do I know if I am in the Historic District?

The City of Natchez has seven (7) adopted local review historic districts.  In 1999, the City of Natchez adopted the Historic Natchez Design Guidelines, a document guiding development and preservation in the Historic Districts of Natchez. Any repair or construction work involving the exterior of the building must receive a Certificate of Appropriateness (COA Application).  "In-kind" repairs using the same materials existing on the house can be approved administratively by the Planning Director, however any new construction, demolition, addition, or exterior alteration must be approved by the Natchez Preservation Commission
