The Town of Brighton in Monroe County adopted a local law for historic
preservation three years ago.  In addition to contracting with the Landmark
Society of Western NY for a cultural resources survey of seventy-five
buildings, the seven member Historic Preservation Commission has designated
eight local landmarks.  One is a late eighteenth century farmhouse/tavern,
another is a Sears Roebuck catalogue house.
The NY State draft ordinance was used as a framework for the Town's law.
Would be glad to answer any questions about how we did it.
