A Certificate of Appropriateness (COA) is a document that states your project has been reviewed and approved by the Historic Preservation Commission or Development Services staff. COAs are granted based on the Salisbury Local Historic Design Standards. If the proposed work meets the Standards, the project is approved. COAs ensure that improvements and changes to properties are consistent with the historic character of the district or building.
Historic Preservation Commission staff are available for pre-application meetings. Contact staff to schedule an appointment.
