First, you can download this brief guide about Living in an Historic District, which will help answer questions as they relate to residents and residential property owners. In 2015, we also published a comprehensive Design Review Guidelines Manual. This resource manual provides detailed assistance when considering the extent to which an historic facade may undergo exterior renovation.

It is critical to note that buildings in either of our historic districts require submission of a Certificate of Appropriateness (COA) for most proposed modifications to the exteriors of the properties.
