The City of Murray Architectural Review Board is established as provided
in Ordinance No. 2003-1334. The Architectural Review Board's function is
the protection and preserving of places and areas of historical and
cultural importance and to promote renovation and rehabilitation. It has
primary responsibility in guiding the overall activities of the City of
Murray Historic Overlay District. The Historic Overlay District
boundaries are bounded by Olive Street to the north, Elm Street to the
south, the west right-of-way of the KWT Railroad to the east, and South
7th Street to the west in Calloway County, Kentucky.
The Board shall consist of five members appointed by the Mayor and approved by the Council. The members shall have demonstrated interest in historic preservation, and at least two members shall have training or experience in a preservation related profession; architecture, history, archaeology, architectural history, planning or related fields. The Board meets the first Thursday of each month at 4:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers of City Hall located at 104 North 5th Street when items have been submitted for review by the Architectural Review Board.
