HDRB Positions Review Architectural Design In Santa Fe’s Historic Districts
Do you have a passion for Santa Fe and what makes our City Different so unique? The Historic Districts Review Board (HDRB) is looking for a new member with a deep understanding of our history and architecture. The HDRB is a seven-member appointed body empowered by the City Council and Planning Commission to review and approve or deny all applications for new construction, exterior alteration, and demolition of structures in the historic districts in accordance with the standards set forth in the Historic Districts Overlay Zoning Ordinance (Section 14-5.2 and Section 14-3.14 of the Santa Fe City Code). The HDRB’s primary purpose is to ensure harmony of new construction and exterior renovations with the unique character of the City’s five historic districts. The HDRB also hears appeals of final actions of the Land Use Director pertaining to historic district regulations and makes recommendations to the City Council regarding historic landmarks and other structures of historical significance throughout the City.
The HDRB is composed of seven members who have demonstrated interest and knowledge of the historic character of the City. Members include an architect, a historian, a representative of the construction industry, a historic district business owner, a member of the Old Santa Fe Association, and two at-large positions. The current vacancy is one of the at-large positions.
Members of the HDRB are appointed by the Mayor. Members are required to meet twice monthly, on the second and fourth Tuesday evening of each month. Commitment to a two-year term is required. Letters of interest (1 page) and resumes (limited to 3 pages) must be submitted by February 28, 2020 to [bot protected email address], or in person at 200 Lincoln Ave.
