Demolition Control Zone

The demolition control zone was put into place in order to protect Paducah's historic properties.  Before any building can be torn down in this zone, the applicant must submit a letter of intent and development plans to the Planning Director for review by a committee.  The committee consists of the Planning Director, the Chief Building Inspector, and the Chairperson of the Historic and Architectural Review Commission.  A majority of vote from this committee must be obtain before any building in this zone can be razed.
