Can I have my preservation plan approved administratively?

A preservation plan may be approved administratively when the Historic Preservation Officer determines that the preservation plan conforms to the requirements of the Historic Preservation Ordinance (PDF), and will not have a significant impact. The Historic Preservation Officer with the concurrence of the Chair of the Historic Preservation Commission may approve the application without a review by the full Historic Preservation Commission. Certain changes in an approved preservation plan for projects currently underway may also be approved administratively.
