Historic Home Information (The Mills Act)
The Mills Act
The Mills Act is a State program that is administered and implemented by local governments, and offers economic incentives to qualifying owners of historic or designated landmark sites upon agreement to rehabilitate, restore, and protect their property.
Under the Mills Act contracts, private owners receive tax relief in exchange for proper maintenance and preservation of the historical and architectural character of the property for a revolving 10-year term.
On January 6, 2015, the Long Beach City Council approved revisions to the Mills Act to provide more opportunities for eligible historic property owners.
For more information on how to apply, visit the LBDS website for the Mills Act.
