Design Review Guidelines

The Miami-Dade County Office of Historic Preservation in partnership with Shulman + Associates and sponsored in part by the Department of State, Division of Historical Resources and the State of Florida, has completed Resilient Rehab: A Guide to Historic Buildings in Miami-Dade County. These design review guidelines enhance and support our preservation efforts, but more importantly, they serve as an invaluable resource to the owners and stewards of historic properties, supporting them in the care of our built and cultural heritage.

Per Miami-Dade County Code Sec. 16A-8, the Historic Preservation Board (HPB) may, in addition to the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards, establish additional standards to aid in regulating historic preservation in the county. Resilient Rehab: A Guide to Historic Buildings in Miami-Dade County was created with the intent to be adopted by the Historic Preservation Board as additional governing standards. The Board of County Commissioners adopted Resilient Rehab as the County’s historic preservation guidelines on February 1, 2022.
