The Illustrated Guidelines on Sustainability for Rehabilitating Historic Buildings, issued by the National Park Service Branch of Technical Preservation Services are part of the Secretary of the Interiors' Standards for Rehabilitation. These guidelines offer recommendations on how to make historic buildings more sustainable in a matter that will preserve their historic character. The City's preservation code Section 36, Article IX, as well as the Comprehensive Plan reference these standards; and the HPB relies on them for design review and compliance purposes.
