Subject: [HistoricWashington] HPO Monthly Public Notice - July 2017

This document and others related to the July 27 and August 3, 2017 HPRB meeting will be posted on our website at:
July 2017
Issued by email on July 12, 2017

This notice is the official monthly announcement by the District of Columbia’s Historic Preservation Office (HPO) of pending matters of public interest.  It includes items related to preservation planning, designation of historic landmarks and historic districts, and project reviews before the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) and U.S. Commission of Fine Arts (CFA).   

Beginning with cases filed for the July 2017 meeting, HPO and HPRB are implementing new public notice requirements enacted by the DC Council.  The new requirements are in addition to the following procedures already in effect: 
1)            Continued public notice by HPO:  HPO posts notice of applications referred to HPRB and CFA on its website and through this monthly public notice emailed to Advisory Neighborhood Commissions (ANCs) and those on the HPO mailing list. This notice lists applications for alteration, new construction, demolition, subdivision, and conceptual review that will be referred to HPRB or CFA. 
2)            Continued public notice by applicants:  After filing, the applicant must post a notice of the proposed work on the property. 
3)            New requirement:  The law now requires a notice of the proposed work, either by hand delivery or the U.S. Postal Service, to the owners of all confronting or abutting properties and to each affected ANC.  While it is the applicant’s duty to provide this notice, HPO has elected to mail these notices for administrative efficiency and convenience.  HPO obtains the names and addresses of abutting and confronting property owners from the DC real property database. 
Applicants are also responsible for making a copy of the project plans available to those receiving the mailed notice. Applicants are encouraged to deliver paper or electronic copies of the plans directly to ANCs and the noticed neighbors, but may also satisfy this requirement by relying on the HPO mailed notice, which includes instructions on how to obtain access to the plans.  HPO can provide electronic copies of the plans by email, or upon request, will arrange for in-person viewing at its office.  HPO does not currently have the capacity to post project plans on its website.
