Will the survey affect owners’ ability to modify, rehab and/or demolish their property?
The Historic Resource Survey does not affect an owner's ability to make modifications to their property.

Owners of properties located in the City’s existing historic preservation overlay districts must adhere to certain guidelines and follow a process when considering changes to their property. Visit http://www.greenvillesc.gov/documentcenter/view/176 to view the guidelines.
