Read the Recommended Historic Resources Code Amendments
The goal of the Historic Resources Code Improvement Project is to streamline the regulatory process around historic resource review. The project team has been looking at ways to create a quicker, easier-to-understand and more predictable review process for projects with minor impacts on historic resources, as well as clarifying code definitions and other code clean-up measures.
On Jan. 22, 2013, the Planning and Sustainability Commission held a public hearing to consider the Proposed Historic Resources Code Improvement Project Zoning Code Amendments and voted to forward a package of recommended Zoning Code Amendments to City Council.
The code amendments will be effective 37 days after the final City Council hearing. The code amendments may also allow the Bureau of Development Services to reduce historic review fees for smaller projects in the near future.
