How long does it take to have projects reviewed and approved?

Minor work approvals usually only take a few days. Projects that require full Historic Resources Commission review can take up to 30 days, since the Commission meets monthly. Sometimes a project can be continued for an extra month if additional information is needed or if a project is extremely complex. In all cases, the Commission must act on an application within 180 days after its filing.
