Appropriateness 'LINK'


A certificate of appropriateness (CoA) is required for all proposed exterior alterations, new construction and demolition within a local historic district, with the exception of routine maintenance, repairs and replacements using the same materials, interior alterations and paint colors. The CoA process involves public meetings with two advisory groups:




appropriateness



If you propose to make modifications to a property (structure and site included) that is designated as a local historic property you will need to follow the steps for obtaining a certificate of appropriateness (COA) prior to pulling necessary permits and beginning work. To determine whether the property is a locally designated historic property, follow the instructions here.


Properties on the Clark County Heritage Register may require a Certificate of Appropriateness before work can be done to the property that affects its historic features or requires a building permit. Ordinary repair and maintenance generally does not require a certificate of appropriateness, however please contact appropriate Historic Preservation Commission staff before proceeding with any maintenance or repair work.


A certificate of appropriateness (COA) is required for exterior alterations to properties located within the city's local historic districts and historic overlays to ensure compatibility with the historic character of the district. Approval is based on the Wilmington Design Guidelines for Historic Districts and Landmarks. The design standards do not impose a particular architectural style, but encourage compatible design and congruity. Major work requires review and approval by the HPC pursuant to Section 18-597 of the Land Development Code.


A certificate of appropriateness authorizes a change in appearance of a building, structure, site, landscape, or object that is designated as a Protected Site or is located within a Preservation District. Failure to comply with the Landmark Preservation Ordinance may result in a stop work order, citation, fines and/or other legal action.
