Sanford / Lee County Development provides staff support for The Sanford Historic Preservation Commission (HPC). The HPC works to protect Sanford's architectural heritage by nominating properties and districts to the National Register of Historic Places, and establishing local historic districts where residents desire protection of their neighborhood's historic resources.

Sanford has five National Register Historic Districts:
Property owners in National Register Districts are eligible for state and federal tax credits for substantial rehabilitation projects, which are approved in advance by the State Historic Preservation Office. Sanford's two Local Historic Districts are Downtown Sanford and Rosemount McIver Park.
