Historic Preservation Program

Our Rich History

The City of Paso Robles has a rich and interesting history. The historic origins of the city date back to the mid-to-late19th century. The city is fortunate to have many historic buildings, landmarks, and some cases districts, that remain in the present time. These historic treasures help shape the community's character and continue Paso Robles' legacy. 

Preservation Program

To help preserve these resources, the City Council established a goal to update the current city-wide Historic Inventory (PDF) and establish a Historic Preservation Ordinance (PDF).

Toward this end, the city has prepared a Historic Resources Survey (PDF) and has drafted a Historic Preservation Ordinance (PDF)

Now that the research is complete, the city is ready to take the program through the public review and hearing process.
