The Preservation Board reviews all exterior changes to landmark properties and properties located within City of Buffalo Preservation Districts as per Chapter 337 of City of Buffalo Code. The Preservation Board uses the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation and Guidelines for Rehabilitating Historic Buildings as its guidelines, which can be found at the National Park Service website.
If the proposed work is a small repair or an in-kind replacement, a staff-level review may be possible. If not, the project will be reviewed at a Preservation Board meeting.
