Requesting approval from the Architectural Review Commission or the Barrio Latino Commission requires an application for a certificate of appropriateness.  Requesting a designation requires approval from the Historic Preservation Commission.  You may download the application forms, complete them and make an appointment with staff for submission by calling (813)274-3100, Option #3.

Many CA's can be issued by ARC/BLC staff, while others must be approved by the board at a public hearing.  In addition to the application forms, the ARC and BLC Submission Requirements explains the forms and what is required for a public hearing. Also, look at the Fee Schedule (PDF) for the appropriate fees.  These must be paid at the time of submission.
