Overview The Architectural and Historic Board of Review (AHBR) reviews and approves/disapproves applications for zoning certificates other than for industrial buildings in industrial zones. The AHBR also issues certificates of appropriateness to construct, alter, remove or demolish structures, buildings or landmarks within any historic district. The AHBR maintains the high character of the community and protects public health, safety, and welfare. It reviews projects against the Architectural Design Standards.
The Architectural and Historic Board of Review (AHBR), Board of Zoning and Building Appeals (BZBA), and Planning Commission (PC) work together, as necessary, for all building and zoning projects. These Board members may serve no more than three consecutive, four-year terms.
