Preserving Dunedin's Character
Dunedin's quality of life is profoundly linked to the appreciation of its diverse and colorful history. Dunedin has changed significantly since the first land deed was recorded in 1852. However, significant historic structures in the town help identify, preserve, and promote Dunedin’s unique village-like quaintness, character and charm.
If your property is a historic structure, you are invited to help us preserve Dunedin’s character by applying for a local historic landmark designation – and when approved, by displaying the Dunedin Historic Landmark Plaque on your property.
Historic Preservation Ordinance
On October 4, 2018, in the interest of the health, prosperity, safety, welfare, and economic well-being of the City's residents and property owners, the City Commission adopted Chapter 111 of the Land Development Code; a historic preservation provision that encompasses the preservation, protection, perpetuation and use of historic landmarks in the City. In addition to helping safeguard its heritage, the City of Dunedin allows certain tax exemptions to encourage the restoration, renovation or rehabilitation of a qualifying property.
