Regulations for Alterations

The City of Reading’s Historic and Conservation Districts Ordinance (Chapter 295) requires the HARB and the Preservation Officer to be guided by the US Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation and Guidelines for Rehabilitating Historic Buildings, Construction Codes (Chapter 180), and by any policies or guidelines adopted by the Board or the City of Reading. Certificates of Appropriateness are approved based on compliance of the proposed alterations with these regulations.
