Concept Review

An applicant may request comments from the Historic Architectural Review Board (HARB) at any time in the planning process for a proposed project. The purpose of the Concept Review is to allow HARB members to provide informal comments and opinions on the historical appropriateness of a proposed project without issuing a formal recommendation to Borough Council for a Certificate of Appropriateness. 

Applicants requesting a Concept Review must submit an application to be heard at an upcoming HARB public meeting by contacting Borough Hall no later than ten (10) business days before the HARB meeting date. An applicant should provide all information required by HARB. Adequate information provided well in advance of a scheduled meeting will promote discussion and encourage helpful comments on the application.
