Public Input Invited on a Potential Expansion of the Historic District
 
The Historic District Commission would like to hear your input into expanding the local historic district in Hopkinton Center. The Historic District Commission believes that by expanding the historic district, the character and historic significance of our town can be preserved. Please see the following documents for more information and please take our survey and/or attend one of our public forums.

Committee Charge & History:

The Hopkinton Center Historic District was established by the townspeople in 1979, consisting primarily of properties surrounding the Town Common, the Common itself, and properties along the south side of Main Street, ending near the corner of Grove Street. A small portion of East Main Street is also included. In recent years, Center School and the Town Hall have been added to the district. The Hopkinton Center Historic District Commission is the reviewing authority responsible for regulating design within the Hopkinton Center Historic District.

Historic Districts in Massachusetts have three major purposes, as stated in Ch. 40C of Massachusetts General Law: 1.) To preserve and protect the distinctive characteristics of buildings and places significant to the history of the Commonwealth and its cities and towns; 2.) To maintain and improve the settings of those buildings and places; 3.) To encourage new designs compatible with existing buildings in the district.
