How do I get my project approved?

The HDRC reviews Certificates of Appropriateness (CAPPs) for projects within the Districts and evaluates each CAPP for compatibility with the individual property, the overall character of the District, and compatibility with the Historic District  Guidelines . Some projects may be eligible for administrative approval by staff. For more information about the CAPP process, click  here .
