To All City of Pittsburgh Residents,
RAMP is looking for recommendations for appointment on the Historical Review Commission. There are two openings on the board. One opening for the community at large and one opening for a “Historical Preservationist”.
The requirements are as follows: You must be a City of Pittsburgh resident and, once recommended, you must be confirmed by the City Council. But, don’t worry, I will walk you through the entire process and ensure everything goes smoothly.
If you are interested and you live in the City of Pittsburgh, please email Ryan at email@example.com. It is important that we get engaged in the political process and make sure we are in positions to influence policy discussions.
What is the Historical Review Commission?
The Historic Review Commission (HRC) protects and maintains historically and architecturally significant buildings and neighborhoods in the City. The HRC is comprised of seven members appointed by the Mayor which must include an architect, a preservationist, a realtor, a building inspector, and a planner.
When a building is designated as an historic landmark, the Historic Review Commission has jurisdiction over all proposed new construction, demolition, and exterior work to the building. The review process begins only when an owner decides to do work to the exterior of their building. For more information on designating structures in your neighborhood as historic landmarks, call 412-255-2243.
