Administrative Review

For administrative review of exterior alterations of local landmarks and local historic districts.

A pre-application review with staff is encouraged. It will enable staff to guide the applicant on what will be required when they apply for a Certificate of Appropriateness.

Email or visit the office and bring the following:

  • photo of the existing historic resource
  • description of scope of work
  • manufacturer cut sheets (specifications) of the proposed materials

The staff planner will respond to you as soon as possible.

If the pre-application materials are  complete, then the staff planner will review according to the Standards of Appropriateness and then make a determination.

For scope of work that only involves maintenance without altering historic features, certain types of signs, re-paint with same color, then staff may administratively approve the request and "sign-off" by email.
