 Historic Documents

If you are the owner of a landmarked property or a site in a historic district, you are required to submit an Application for a Certificate of Appropriateness to the Commission for any visible changes to your building from the outside. This includes awnings and signage, painting and roofing, along with changes to entrances, windows and other visible exterior features.
