Certificate of Appropriateness

A Certificate of Appropriateness (COA) is required for any exterior change to private property that is visible from a public street and within a locally designated historic district or landmark, unless the change is determined to be ordinary maintenance and repair.

Depending on the nature of the work proposed, a COA may be issued through a staff-level approval process, or by the HPC through a public hearing process.
