5. How are decisions by the Commission reached?


Decisions are based on guidelines that the Commission periodically updates. (The Commission is currently revising its guidelines.)  The guidelines are drawn from standards at the State and Federal levels, members’ understanding of historical architectural styles, and each member’s sense of design. The guidelines help insure that changes are made in harmony with the existing neighborhood and will preserve the historic integrity of structures and neighborhoods.
