Historic District Commission

Who We Are


The Windsor Historic District Commission (HDC) is an appointed commission charged with the preservation of the historic character of the Windsor Historic District, which is generally located 250 feet to either side of Palisado Avenue, between the Farmington River and Bissell's Ferry Road.  Through its regulations, the HDC regulates the exterior appearance of all man-made structures visible from the street within the Windsor Historic District.

Did You Know?

When Town Hall was renovated back in 1990, the second floor was redesigned with an open central floor plan designed to provide one-stop shopping for all of your development needs.  The Building, Economic Development, Engineering, Fire Marshal, Health, and Planning Departments are all clustered around a central visitors area so that we can help you with your permitting needs from project concept to completion in one convenient location. 


Many staff members have been cross-trained to handle basic functions in other departments, so even if the official you are looking for is out of the office, chances are, someone else can at least get you started in the right direction.
