Preferably Preserved Buildings Currently Subject to Demolition Delay


Three historical houses located on North Avenue, Fields Pond Road, and Skating Pond Road have been proposed for demolition and as such, the Historical Commission has imposed a demolition delay and classified each of these houses as "preferably preserved." 

The Historical Commission, a Selectmen-appointed body, is charged with administering the Demolition Delay By-law, which is Article 26 of the Town's general by-laws. It was added by a vote of Town Meeting in 1998 "...for the purpose of preserving and protecting...buildings that reflect distinctive features of the architectural, cultural, economic, political or social history of the Town..." The intent of the by-law is to provide an opportunity to develop preservation solutions for properties that are threatened with demolition.  The Historical Commission has found success in working with property owners to preserve Weston's architectural history. 

Information on the three houses can be found by following the link below. A lot of information about Weston's historic resources and neighborhoods is available on the Town's website and also includes additional information on how the demolition delay by-law works.
