Certificate of Appropriateness

Instructions and Application

The Town of New Paltz Historic Preservation Commission requires proposed work on properties designated as local historic landmarks be reviewed by the Commission prior to the start of the project.  When the Commission reviews and approves proposed changes to a property designated as a local landmark, they issue a "Certificate of Appropriateness," a document stating that the proposed work is appropriate for the historic property or district and meets local code criteria.  

Please refer to the following documents for specific information about what is needed for a Certificate of Appropriateness, the design review process, and to obtain an application for proposed exterior work.
