A Certificate of Appropriateness shall be required whether or not a building permit is required. A decision of the Historic Preservation Commission regarding an application for a Certificate of Appropriateness may be appealed by the applicant to the city council.

Design Guidelines: No exterior portion of any building or other structure (including walls, fences, light fixtures, steps and pavement, or other appurtenant features) nor aboveground utility structures nor any type of outdoor advertising sign shall be erected, altered, restored, moved or demolished within this district until after an application for a Certificate of Appropriateness as to exterior features has been submitted to and approved by the Historic Preservation Commission.

The Historic Preservation Commission shall review the “Historic Downtown, City Park and Warehouse District Design Guidelines" as they exist or as amended for compliance before issuing a Certificate of Appropriateness. Such a certificate is to be issued by the Historic Preservation Commission prior to the issuance of a building permit or other permit granted for purposes of construction or altering structures.

Below are copies of the guidelines along with maps to identify each district.
