CERTIFICATE OF APPROPRIATENESS:
The Eureka Springs Historic District Commission does exterior design review for ALL properties in the Historic District, regardless of age of property or zoning. The Historic District includes most of the land within the city limits. ALL exterior features of a property are subject to the design review procedures of the Eureka Springs Historic District Commission, including signage.
The ES HDC bases their decisions on the U.S. Secretary of the Interior‚ Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties and Eureka Springs Historic District Guidelines.
The HDC meets on first and third Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m. in City Hall. Applications for a Certificate of Appropriateness are available at City Hall and must be filed 15 days before the meeting at which it will be heard. Minor maintenance and some repairs with the same materials may be approved administratively.
No fee. Contact: City Historic Preservation Officer
