Buildings and structures within the Madison Historic District must receive a Certificate of Appropriateness (COA) prior to the initiation of planned work. A COA is a permit issued to ensure that the exterior work planned for a building meets the criteria of the design guidelines. Staff has been authorized by the Historic District Board of Review to review and approve certain items. Those items are listed in depth in the Madison Approval Guidelines (PDF) which can be accessed through the Office of Historic Preservation.
