We are a group of neighborhood residents working towards a Local Historic District designation for Travis Heights/Fairview Park. This effort aims to encourage responsible development and improvements that respect the historic and eclectic character of Travis Heights.

Travis Heights’ distinctive eclecticism has been evolving for over 100 years. It is built upon respect for both the unique natural environment and the rich architectural history of the neighborhood. The colorful old houses, decorated yards, winding streets, dramatic hillsides, and the densely wooded trails and creeks all contribute to the neighborhood’s unique character.

The aim of a Local Historic District is not to prevent change, but rather to assure that changes respect the history and eclecticism of the neighborhood. Our historic district’s Design Standards will encourage rehabilitations, additions and new construction in contemporary styles just as much as they will encourage historical restoration and conservation. The Design Standards’ role is to assure that these improvements commit to principles of historic preservation while sustaining and celebrating the unique characteristics the neighborhood.
