My house is historic. Are there special requirements to do an addition?
If your residence is listed on the Historic Resources Inventory, or located in a historic district or conservation area, or a designated City Landmark, then special requirements will apply.


Specifically, either a Single-Family House Permit or an Historic Preservation Permit will be required. For more information, please see our Single-Family House Permit brochure and/or our Historic Preservation section.
