About the Ldrc 

The Landmarks Design Review Committee (Ldrc) is comprised of two members of the Landmarks Board and one Historic Preservation Planner. The Ldrc typically meets every Wednesday morning (except holidays) at the Planning and Development Services Center at 1739 Broadway Street, 3rd floor, Olmsted Conference room, Boulder, Colorado 80302.  

Additional information on the review processes is available online:

  • Design Review:  All exterior changes to an individual landmark or a property located in a historic district requires review and approval through a Landmark Alteration Certificate (LAC) to ensure the changes are compatible with the historic character of the landmarked site. The changes must meet the Design Guidelines  The Ldrc can either approval an application, request revisions, or refer the application to the Landmarks Board for review in a public hearing.
  • Demolition Review:  Demolition permit applications for non-designated buildings constructed before 1940 are reviewed by the Ldrc to prevent the loss of potentially significant buildings. The Ldrc determines whether a building is potentially eligible for landmark designation and can either approve the demolition permit or refer the application to the Landmarks Board for review in a public hearing.
