What do I need to know about performing roofing work in the City’s Local Historic Districts?

Roofing work located in the Local Historic Districts may be approved administratively by Planning Department Staff if there is no expansion to the footprint of the roof and no change to the pitch or dimensions of the roof. The other stipulation is that the roofing material color cannot be white or very light in color. The City prefers darker, earthier tones within its historic districts regarding roofing material. Rubber or metal roofs are not permitted in the Local Historic Districts unless they are located on a flat roof which is not visible from the City’s right of ways or if partially replacing and matching already existing material on the structure.Should the property owner wish to have white/light colored shingles or a metal/rubber roof, they will need to seek the approval of the Historic Preservation Commission through a Material Change of Appearance Certification
