Ad Valorem Property Tax Exemption Program for Historic Structures
The City of Titusville has created an ad valorem tax exemption for qualifying improvements of properties designated on Titusville’s Register of Historic Places.  The exemption program was adopted by City Council on January 9, 2018.  The tax exemption program provides a positive financial incentive for local designation of historic structures; encourages rehabilitation/restoration of locally designated historic structures; stabilizes and improves  property values; and improves the appearance of designated structures, revitalizing neighborhoods within the City.  For more information about the program
 please contact Tim Ford at 321-567-3860 or timothy.ford@titusville.com. The Ad Valorem Property Tax Exemption Application and Process Steps can be found at the following links:

The Secretary of the Interior’s Standards
The Secretary of the Department of the Interior has a series of Standards to abide by regarding the maintenance, replacement, and repairing of historic materials, as well as the design of new additions and alterations to a property.

In addition, there are also Department of the Interior guidelines that recommend how the Standards can be applied to a specific property when it comes to design and technical treatment. Together, they serve as a frame of reference in the decision-making process about the changes to a historic property.
These Standards and Guidelines cover historic properties of all types, materials, sizes, construction styles, and uses (both interior and exterior). They can be applied to a property’s landscape features, environment, site, or other related new construction as well.

There are four specific, but interrelated approaches to the treatment of historic properties: preservation, rehabilitation, restoration, and reconstruction. Each has its own set of Standards and Guidelines, which you can find here
