Certificate of Appropriateness
Any exterior work (including painting) to buildings, outbuildings, or other exterior features located within one of the City of Hamilton's Historic Areas or properties individually listed by Ordinance is not permitted until  the Architectural Design Review Board (ADRB) issues a Certificate of Appropriateness for the work.  It is the responsibility of the ADRB to review the plans, monitor the work, and administer the Architectural Conservation/Historic District section (Section 1126.00) of the Hamilton City Zoning Ordinance.  
Applications and plans are submitted to the Department of Community Development.  The ADRB meets the first and third Tuesday of every month at 4:30 p.m. in City Council Chambers at 345 High Street, Hamilton, Ohio 45011.  

Please do not hesitate to contact that office with any questions or concerns, call 513-785-7350 or email the staff.
