Landmarks Design Review Committee 8:30 A.M.

Exterior changes to an individually landmarked property or one located within a historic district requires review and approval through a Landmark Alteration Certificate (LAC). The Landmarks Design Review Committee (Ldrc) is comprised of two members of the Landmarks Board and one Historic Preservation Planner. See the Design Review page for more information.

Landmarks Board Review Required

  • The majority of applications are reviewed and approved at the administrative level or the Landmarks Design Review Committee level. However, certain projects require a public hearing before the Landmarks Board. These include:
    • Applications for new free-standing construction over 340 square feet
    • Proposed demolition on a landmarked site or within a historic district
    • Applications referred by the Landmarks Design Review Committee

A decision by the Landmarks Board is final unless it is called up by the City Council.
