The Landmarks Board is constituted under the Landmarks Preservation Ordinance (Ordinance No. 4721; Title 9, Chapter 11, Boulder Revised Code, 1981) to designate landmarks and historic districts; review and approve applications for Landmark Alteration Certificates on such buildings or in such districts; review demolition applications for non-designated buildings over 50 years old; and recognize buildings as Structures of Merit.  
Public hearing items will be conducted in the following manner:
  1. Board members will explain all ex-parte* contacts they may have had regarding the item, if the hearing is quasi-judicial.
  2. Those who wish to address the issue (including the applicant, staff members and public) are sworn in, if the hearing is quasi-judicial.
  3. A historic preservation staff person will present a recommendation to the board.
  4. Board members will ask any questions to historic preservation staff.
  5. The applicant will have a maximum of 10 minutes to make a presentation or comments to the board.
  6. The public hearing provides any member of the public three minutes within which to make comments. (a) At the chair’s discretion, members of the public may pool their time provided all members of the pool are present. Only one member of the pool may speak on behalf of the pool. Maximum pooled time allowed is as follows: 2 people = 5 minutes; 3 people = 7 minutes; 4 people = 9 minutes; 5 or more people = 10 minutes. (b) Members of the public may, at the chair’s discretion, use Powerpoint, images, or handouts as part of their presentation. Electronic presentations should be emailed to the Board Secretary at least 24 hours in advance of the meeting. Time limits (above) apply.
  7. After the public hearing is closed, there is discussion by board members, during which the chair of the meeting may permit board questions to and answers from the staff, the applicant, or the public.
  8. Board members will vote on the matter; an affirmative vote of at least three members of the board is required for approval.
* Ex-parte contacts are communications regarding the item under consideration that a board member may have had with someone prior to the meeting.
