MAHDC believes that it is important that Maryland's historic preservation commissions be sufficiently equipped to fulfill their statutory roles and their educational functions. To this effect, MAHDC has compiled a number of useful materials in our library for distribution.
One important document that is available to our membership is the Maryland Historic Preservation Commissions Handbook. The Handbook, crafted in 1997, is a a collection of information essential to the work of Historic District Commissions, including basic design guidelines, information on meeting procedures, preservation law, etc. While the handbook is available to MAHDC commissions only, the table of contents provides a preview of what the full document has to offer.
In addition to this manual, The MAHDC provides a full range of materials to assist local commissions in doing their jobs. These materials include:
Renovator’s Roundtable: a detailed education program for historic district commissions and owners of historic properties. Session topics include the following: technical information on historic roofs, windows, masonry and wood; routine maintenance; analysis of historic design and setting; and the historic district commission review process. Each of these eight presentations are available in slide format and can be obtained for presentation by local preservation groups.
Built by Design: a videotape program about the survey, education, and protection process for use by Historic District Commissions or communities considering a preservation ordinance.
Members may contact MAHDC for copies of these materials.
