Special Districts

(lighting district, historic district)

Since 1970, Seattle has established seven historic districts: Ballard Avenue; Columbia City; Fort Lawton; Harvard-Belmont; International District; Pike Place Market; and Pioneer Square. The appearance and historical integrity of structures and public spaces within each district are regulated by a citizens board and/or the Landmarks Preservation Board in accordance with processes and criteria established by City ordinance. Therefore, pedestrian improvement projects that are to be constructed within a historic district or which will impact historic structures must be reviewed and approved by the Landmarks Board.
