Board of Architectural Review (BAR)

About the Board of Architectural Review:
Board of Architectural ReviewThe BAR consists of seven members appointed by the Town Council. The BAR’s primary responsibility is to review applications for Certificates of Appropriateness (COAs) for projects in the Old and Historic District (map) and H-2 Corridor. The BAR reviews applications for projects ranging from small garages and sheds to residential additions and multi-building commercial developments. Members are appointed for their interest in the Town’s history and historic resources, and in many cases, because of relevant professional expertise. With backgrounds in architecture, real estate, historic preservation, construction, building conservation and the law, the BAR is well-qualified to review and approve projects and to advise the Town Council on preservation issues. A representative from the Planning Commission and Town Council also attend the BAR meetings, as non-voting members.

Meetings
The Board of Architectural Review Work Session scheduled for Wednesday, September 3, 2014 has been cancelled.  The next meeting is scheduled for Monday, September 15, 2014 at 7pm.

Unless otherwise noted on the 2014 Meeting Schedule, the BAR holds a regular business meeting on the 3rd Monday of each month at 7pm in the Council Chamber on the 2nd floor of Town Hall.  Depending upon the nature and quantity of applications received, the BAR will sometimes hold work sessions on the 1st Monday of each month, also at 7pm in the Council Chamber.  All meetings are broadcast on the Town's Local Government Access Cable Channel (Comcast Government Channel 67 and Verizon Channel 35).  Previous meetings of the BAR can be viewed in our archived webcasts.
