Historical Affairs and Landmark Review Board (HALRB)

NOTICE: Due to the COVID-19 emergency, Historical Affairs and Landmark Review Board meeting schedules and format have changed.

Meeting dates and times are tentative until an agenda is posted.
     • At this time, confirmed meetings will convene virtually. Learn how to view and participate below.

The Historical Affairs and Landmark Review Board (HALRB) advises the County Board on historic preservation matters. The HALRB nominates properties for local and national designation and also reviews plans for exterior alterations, demolition, and new construction in locally designated Arlington historic districts through a Certificate of Appropriateness (CoA) process.

Certificate of Appropriateness Process

Applicants who have submitted a Certificate of Appropriateness (CoA) application must go before the Design Review Committee (DRC) – a subcommittee that works with the HALRB. The DRC offers free technical and design advice to the applicant and helps finalize the CoA request before it goes to the HALRB for review. This flowchart shows how an application for a CoA progresses.
