Placement on the register does not affect the use of the structure, nor does it require repairs or restoration. Listing on the city's Historic Register is an honorary designation denoting significant association with the historic, archaeological, engineering or cultural heritage of the community. Properties are listed individually or as contributing properties to an historic district.
Repair & Maintenance & Emergency Measures
Prior to the commencement of any work on a Historic Register property, excluding ordinary repair and maintenance and emergency measures that are defined in AMC 17.50050, the owner must request and receive a Certificate of Appropriateness from the Commission for the proposed work. Violation of this rule shall be grounds for the Commission to review the property for removal from the register.
Waiver of a Certificate of Appropriateness
Prior to whole or partial demolition of a registered property, the owner must request and receive a waiver of a Certificate of Appropriateness from the Commission.
