Biddeford Historic Preservation Program

The City of Biddeford recently adopted a new Historic Preservation Ordinance that requires that in most cases prior to alterations to buildings and structures in the MSRD 1, MSRD2, and MSRD 3 Zones to occur first a Certificate of Appropriateness be issued by either the Historic Preservation Commission or its delegated authority Subcommittee.

A new Application Form for a Certificate of Appropriateness is now available for download below.

This website will be further updated with information on the program as it becomes available.

If there are any questions about the program, please contact Greg Tansley, City Planner at 284-9115 or
