The City of Pasadena Historic
Property Contract Program was established by ordinance in October 2002 under
the authority of a State enabled program known as the Mills Act (California
Government Code, Article 12, Sections 50280-50290). Under this act, local
governments may enter into historic property contracts with owners of
qualifying privately owned historic properties who agree to rehabilitate,
restore and/or maintain their property according to the Secretary of Interior
Standards. Click on the link below to view and download the 2016 Mills Act

Property Contract Program. The complete regulations are in the legal texts of
the California Government Code and the City of Pasadena Ordinance 6912.
