In order to expedite the review process, the Commission has delegated the approval of certain work items, such as those involving ordinary maintenance and repair, restoration or replacement, or which otherwise have a minimal impact on a building’s appearance, to the staff pending ratification at its monthly public hearing.  The following applications have been identified as being eligible for such approval.

►Applicants listed under this heading NEED NOT APPEAR at the hearing.  Following the hearing, please present a copy of this agenda at the Inspectional Services Department (1010 Massachusetts Avenue) when applying for permits.  ISD personnel will send an electronic copy of your building-permit application to the Environment Department. (To avoid confusion, the text of your building-permit application should be consistent with the project description given below.) Upon its receipt, Commission staff will accordingly authorize the execution of the work, attaching any applicable provisos, reflecting the relevant guidelines and precedents. 

PLEASE NOTE THAT NO FURTHER CORRESPONDENCE WILL BE ISSUED for the applications listed below:  the electronic building-permit application as annotated by Commission staff will constitute your Certificate of Appropriateness. The applicant is required to notify the commission of any project changes; failure to do so may affect the status of the approval.
