Are there any financial incentives available to owners of designate heritage resources?
The City of Plano offers a partial property tax exemption to individually designated properties and to properties that contribute historically and architecturally to a designated heritage district and that meet a set of basic maintenance standards. Collin College and Plano Independent School District also participate in the program. The program is intended to aid in the maintenance and upkeep of heritage resources. Therefore, the property is inspected once a year to ensure that it is being maintained properly. The program is voluntary.
Other incentive programs may be available. Contact the Heritage Preservation Officer at 972-941-7151 for more information.
