Landmarks and Historic Districts 2020 public hearing dates

Public design review hearings for historic districts and individual landmarks are held once a month. 

Landmarks Commission staff support an annual schedule of 131 hearings. Please check each hearing's agenda for the room location and start time. We accept applications on a rolling basis. To be added to a hearing agenda, an application must be determined to be complete by staff fifteen (15) business days before the public hearing date. We cannot add incomplete applications to a public hearing agenda.

Keep in mind:

The fourth Tuesday hearing every month for the Boston Landmarks Commission combines Design Review, from about 4 - 5:30 p.m., with the full commission hearing starting at 6 p.m. BLC reserves meeting times on the second Tuesday of the month at 6 p.m. for non-design review items.
