What type of work requires design review?

All work involving a change to an exterior feature of a designated property requires design review. Projects that physically alter the property include but are not limited to:

  • Changes in site or setting
  • New construction or additions
  • Relocation or demolition
  • Repair or rehabilitation

Neither interior alteration nor a change in the use of the property require design review. The Historic Preservation Ordinance applies to external appearance of the property and regulates neither zoning nor land use. Ordinary maintenance does not require design review.
