Does my project require approval from the Planning Department or does it need to go before the Architectural Board of Review?

All modifications, renovations, or additions to anywhere on the exterior of your property require approval from the Planning Department and may require approval from the Architectural Board of Review.  This includes projects like roof, window, door replacement, or landscape structures. 

Projects that are interior only, require approval from the Building Department.
