Town Of Moraga

Historic Preservation Ordinance

On January 14, the Town Council introduced an ordinance to add Chapter 8.176, Historic Preservation, to the Moraga Municipal Code. The ordinance includes definitions, procedures and criteria for nomination and designation of historical landmarks, and incentives to be offered to the owners of designated landmarks to support the preservation, maintenance and appropriate rehabilitation of those resources. The ordinance allows the Town to designate a historic landmark, based on appropriate study and findings, without the consent of the property owner, if necessary. The ordinance will return for adoption and a second reading at a meeting in the near future.
