Historic Architectural Review Board Applications

The Historic Architectural Review Board (HARB) meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month unless otherwise noticed. Applications can be submitted through the Planning and Building Department's Online Portal and must be submitted according to the application deadline schedule to meet state mandated legal advertising requirements

NOTE: As we transition to the online application system, please notify staff with any issues or concerns. We will continue to accept paper or PDF versions of the application through February 20, 2023Application fees must still be paid via a credit card authorization form submitted to harb@citystaug.com or by visiting or calling the Planning and Building Department. 

For information on registering and submitting applications via the Online Portal, watch our short video or read our brief How-To Guide.

A Certificate of Appropriateness (COA) is required for most work done within any of St. Augustine's 5 Historic Preservation (HP) zoning districts. 

To see which zoning district your building is in, please use the Interactive GIS Map, pull up the Zoning Districts map layer, and search for your address.  

Applications are reviewed for consistency with the Architectural Guidelines for Historic Preservation (AGHP). A Submittal Checklist is provided for your reference and organized based upon project scope. Keep in mind, depending on the scope of the project, additional Certificate applications for Full Demolition, Partial Demolition, or Relocation may also be required.
