Historic Districts Review Board
The City of Santa Fe Historic Districts Review Board (HDRB) hears applications for construction, demolition and historic status review of structures within the City’s historic districts and for structures designated as landmarks outside of the City’s historic districts.
HDRB meetings are held on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month at 5:30 pm in City Council Chambers at City Hall, 200 Lincoln Ave. HDRB meetings are public hearings at which the public is invited and encouraged to speak. HDRB members are appointed by the Mayor with the consent of the Santa Fe City Council.

Once you have submitted your application packet, your case will be put on the next available agenda (please see schedule of deadlines below). You will then attend your scheduled hearing where you will discuss your case with the HDRB. At the next hearing (usually two weeks later), the Findings of Fact for your case will be voted on (approved or disapproved). Once Findings of Fact are approved, the appeal period for your case begins. The appeal period is fifteen (15) calendar days. You may file for your permit during this time. However, your permit will not be released until after the appeal period and only if there are no appeals on the case. If there is an appeal filed on a case, the permit will not be released until after the appeal has been completed and the permit will be dependent on the outcome of the appeal. This full process from submittal to end of the appeal period, with no appeals filed, takes approximately sixty (60) days.
