Overview The Architectural and Historic Board of Review (AHBR)
reviews and approves/disapproves applications for zoning certificates
other than for industrial buildings in industrial zones. The AHBR also
issues certificates of appropriateness to construct, alter, remove or
demolish structures, buildings or landmarks within any historic
district. The AHBR maintains the high character of the community and
protects public health, safety, and welfare. It reviews projects against
the Architectural Design Standards.
The Architectural and Historic Board of Review (AHBR), Board of Zoning
and Building Appeals (BZBA), and Planning Commission (PC) work together,
as necessary, for all building and zoning projects. These Board members
may serve no more than three consecutive, four-year terms.
