It is imperative that new construction matches approved plans precisely. Any desired changes or modifications to the approved plans require Historic Preservation Commission re-review prior to the change being made. Any changes made without an amended Certificate of Appropriateness are considered violations of City code. Structures that do not match the approved plans will not pass final inspections and therefore no Certificate of Occupancy shall be granted.
If unforeseen circumstances require that your approved plans be modified in any way, contact Planning staff immediately to be placed on an upcoming agenda. Do not proceed without an amended Certificate of Appropriateness.
