Requesting approval from the Architectural Review Commission or the Barrio Latino Commission requires an application for a certificate of appropriateness. Requesting a designation requires an approval from the Historic Preservation Commission. You may download the application forms, complete them and make an appointment with staff for submission by calling (813)274-3100.
Many CA's can be issued by ARC/BLC staff, while others must be approved by the board at a public hearing. In addition to the application forms, the ARC Submission Requirements (PDF) or the BLC Submission Requirements (PDF) (also see left side menu for submissions) explains the forms and what is required for public hearing. Also, look at the Fee Schedule (PDF) for the appropriate fees. These must be paid at the time of submission. Payment may be made in checks, MasterCard and Visa.
