Upcoming Historic Preservation Review Board Meeting

HPRB April 30, 2020 (Tentative)

Due to the DC government operating status, HPRB meetings scheduled through April 26 are cancelled. Cases scheduled for these meetings may be heard at a continuation meeting tentatively scheduled for Thursday, April 30, 2020. Please check back later for updates or changes.

Access the Monthly Public Notice here.

New HPRB Filings
We are not accepting new HPRB filings at this time. However, we encourage interested applicants to email plans and a completed concept application to [email protected] so that our staff can begin review of the project. HPO can approve some projects without referral to HPRB or consult with you to ensure an expeditious scheduling of the case when the Board reconvenes.

We will notify the applicant(s) for any cases emailed to us whether HPRB review will be required, and what steps they need to take to provide public notice and file the application once new filings are being accepted. In the event normal government operations commence on April 27, filings for the May HPRB meetings will be due on May 1st.

If submissions are too large to send electronically, please email us and we will make alternative provisions.

New CFA Filings
New filings for the Commission of Fine Arts (Old Georgetown Board or Shipstead-Luce) can be submitted electronically at [email protected]. Filings must include plans and a completed CFA application. We will provide further information by email to applicants regarding their responsibilities to provide public notice. CFA filing fees are not being collected at the time of filing but will be assessed by DCRA prior to the issuance of any building permits.

If submissions are too large to send electronically, please email us and we will make alternative provisions.
