Newtown Area Joint Historic Commission

The Joint Historic Commission's primary responsibility is the protection and preservation of historically and/or architecturally significant structures in Newtown Township and Newtown Borough.

Owners of properties seeking to obtain permission to demolish all or part of a structure must initially file an application for a "Determination of Significance" with the respective municipality. This authorizes the Joint Historic Commission to conduct a review of the structure that may include archival research, site investigation, and formal discussion. The results of this work, and a recommendation to approve or deny the request for demolition, are submitted in a written report to the Township Board of Supervisors or Newtown Borough Council.

As an advocate for historic preservation, the Joint Historic Commission can be a resource for property owners, and Borough and Township boards and committees, regarding historic and/or architecturally significant structures.

Meetings are conducted on the fourth Monday of each month at 7:30 PM in Newtown Borough Council Chamber, located at 23 North State Street. Its members serve a four-year term.
