How do I obtain a Certificate of Appropriateness?
Once you submit your application, the Architectural Review Board (ARB) Agent will review the proposed work, consult the design guidelines and schedule the matter for an ARB meeting. The time line for approval depends on the nature and scope of the proposed work. The ARB Agent may approve some simple, routine improvements, often on a same-day basis. In general, larger or more complex projects require a hearing before the ARB, which meets the 2nd Thursday of each month. The deadline for submitting material for the Board's consideration is 15 business days prior to the meeting.
