HISTORIC OAKLAND CITY

The neighborhood of Oakland City is part of the City of Atlanta’s Oakland City Historic District. To preserve the historic physical pattern, the architectural history, the historic diversity of housing in the district, and to ensure renovations, new development and construction are consistent with the characteristics of the district, the City of Atlanta created the regulations governing construction within the Oakland City Historic District. If you want to build new construction or renovate your current structure, below are some helpful links and guidelines.

SCHEDULE A MEETING

You should reach out to our historic preservation committee if you:

- As an investor or contractor considering purchasing a home in a historic district and want to know limitations and regulations for the property and/or lot.
