Italian Village Commission
The Italian Village Commission and the Italian Village Historic District were established by Ordinance # 1579-73 in 1973. The Commission Guidelines were adopted in 1990. The Italian Village Commission consists of seven (7) mayoral appointees who serve without compensation. It is the duty of the Commission to preserve, protect and enhance the unique architectural and historical features of the Italian Village Historic District.
The Commission considers applications and issues Certificates of Appropriateness for exterior alterations at properties located within the Italian Village Historic District boundaries, pursuant to Columbus City Code chapters 3116 and 3119 the Italian Village District Guidelines. The High Street corridor within Italian Village and Victorian Village is covered by the Short North Design Guidelines, which provide a unified framework for reviewing projects in this vibrant area.
