PRESERVATION AND DEVELOPMENT SUBCOMMITTEE
PROJECT REVIEW PROCESS
The review process is started with an email to email@example.com stating the name and email address of the project representative providing that information. The Preservation & Development subcommittee will email an Intake Form that lists items required for the submittal process.
The Intake Form must be returned via email. The subcommittee typically meets the third Tuesday of each month. Please indicate the month in which you wish the project to be reviewed. The subcommittee will send an email indicating the date, time and location of the review.
The project materials as listed on the Intake Form and discussed in the Design Guidelines and Required Review and Presentation Materials documents must be delivered to each committee member by 5 p.m. at least 4 business days prior to the sub-committee meeting date (i.e., on or before Thursday evening preceding the Tuesday evening meeting).

The Standards are to be applied to specific rehabilitation projects in a reasonable manner, taking into consideration economic and technical feasibility.
