Certificates of Appropriateness are Required Prior to Issuance of a Building Permit.
Properties required to undergo historic review are identified with Historic Overlay Zoning.

Historic review applies to all structures on a site, including fences and accessory structures.
Preservation staff are available to discuss projects on all historic-age properties (even those without historic overlay zoning) and can provide technical references that are available to help avoid damage. Contact the Planning and Development Services desk at 512-218-5428 to discuss alterations to a historic property and/or the Certificate of Appropriateness process.
