Making Changes to a Building in the Harvard-Belmont Landmark District

Jurisdiction over changes and improvements in the District is vested in the Seattle Landmarks Preservation Board. To ensure adequate community involvement and contact, a Harvard-Belmont Application Review Committee with local representation was created to make recommendations to the Landmarks Preservation Board. The Review Committee consists of three members selected from property owners, residents, business owners or employees, or officers of institutions within the District boundaries and two members of the Landmarks Preservation Board.

To get your project reviewed and approved, you must submit a completed Application for Certificate of Approval to the Historic Preservation Program. (See Instructions for Applying for a Certificate of Approval.) Once your application is deemed complete, you will be invited to attend a meeting of the Harvard-Belmont Application Review Committee to present your plans. Meetings of the Harvard-Belmont Application Review Committee are held on an as-needed basis. The Landmarks Preservation Board conducts regular meetings on the first and third Wednesday of each month. Go to Harvard-Belmont Application Review Committee Agenda and Landmarks Preservation Board Agenda to learn about upcoming meetings.
