    For projects in the Historic District, the department may seek the input of a licensed architect with specialization in historic structures to evaluate submittals, the cost of which would be the responsibility of the applicant.

The review retainer is not to be used to pay invoices during the course of review, those will be sent separately to the applicant.

    Full payment of all fees is a requirement for City’s final approval of the Application. Following the approval of a permit and the payment of all required fees, or following a written letter from the applicant requesting the application be withdrawn and voided, any remaining balance will be refunded to the applicant, typically within 60 days.
