The Romeo Historic District was entered into the National Register of Historic Places in 1970. Because of this designation, a historic district ordinance was adopted, and a Romeo Historic District Commission (HDC) was established to review work done in the district. The intent is to assist in the long term preservation of historic materials and features. The purpose of the Historic district ordinance is to:
- Preserve the heritage of the Village of Romeo by preserving the architectural history of its structures.
- Protect property values in the district.
- Keep the charm of the village.
- Support the local economy.
- Promote the use of historic districts for the education, pleasure and welfare of the citizens of the Village.
The Romeo Historic District Commission reviews plans for the construction, alteration, moving, or demolition of all buildings in the Historic District. View a map of the historic district.
