In 1984, the City of Palm Springs established Municipal Code Chapter 8.05 “Historic Preservation” for the purpose and authority of preserving areas and specific buildings of the City which reflect elements of Palm Springs’ cultural, social, economic, political, architectural, and archaeological history. Historic Designation is intended to stabilize and improve buildings, structures or areas which are considered to be of historical, architectural, archaeological or ecological value, to foster civic beauty, to strengthen the local economy, and to promote the use of specific buildings for the education and welfare of the citizens of Palm Springs.

To see a list of designated Class 1 Historic Sites, as well as those currently in the designation process, please visit the City of Palm Springs website.

In the near future, we will be posting an array of information designed to assist people seeking to apply for Class 1 Historic Site designation in Palm Springs for their home or commercial property.

In the meantime, feel free to e-mail PS ModCom President Peter Moruzzi via ( for further information.
