[Update for Utah Specific] The first step is to find out what residents and property owners think. If there is interest in creating a local historic district, the Board of Selectmen appoints a study committee that will investigate local historic district designation further. The study committee holds public meetings, seeks public input, researches the history of the area and prepares a report on their findings. The final step is passage of a historic district bylaw by a two-thirds majority at town meeting.
