Cultural Resources Office Hotspot

Andi Gagen hard at work at Hotspot

Located in City Hall Room 421, just down the hall from the Permit Section, Hotspot is a special service of the Cultural Resources Office, to assist citizens in historic districts and to expedite permit review.  At Hotspot, an applicant can get advice about a planned project, and assistance with revisions to bring the project into compliance with the standards for the historic district. 

The CRO plan reviewer can also approve smaller projects over-the-counter: for example, windows, roofing, fencing, and more; and help home owners with general technical assistance.  From the correct mortar compound for your wall to the proper techniques to restore an entire building, Hotspot is a great source for your preservation project.
