Responsibilities & Duties

The Committee for Historic Preservation, with advice from the Building Inspector, reviews each application filed with the Building Department for a permit to demolish, all or any substantial part of any building in the Village, and decides whether the building in question appears to be one of significant historical importance. Based on their determination, they may advise the Building Inspector as to whether or not it is required that the home owner make an application to the Committee for Historic Preservation (CHP) for a Certificate of Appropriateness to determine if a demolition permit application should be granted. The Committee for Historic Preservation may also advise as to whether any conditions should be imposed if a certificate of appropriateness and demolition permit are to be granted.
