New HPRB Filings
We are currently accepting new HPRB filings electronically. Applicants should email plans and a completed concept application to [email protected]. The filing deadline for the November 19 HPRB meeting was Friday, October 16.
We will notify the applicants for cases emailed to us whether HPRB review will be required, and what steps they need to take to provide the required public notice. Historic preservation filing fees will be assessed upon receipt of the application but will be collected at a later date prior to the issuance of building permits.
If submissions are too large to send electronically, please email us at [email protected] and we will make alternative provisions.
