Buildings also display an appreciation for the bucolic and spacious settings on large suburban lots.

The historic district is administered through the City’s Department of Planning.


Auburndale Historic District Commission reviews plans for exterior alterations, new construction, and demolition. The Commission meets on the second Tuesday of each month. Meeting agendas and minutes are available online.
