A Certificate of Appropriateness (COA) is necessary for obtaining a building permit for exterior work on a structure within the City’s historic districts. You can submit the COA application online. If you are not able to submit the application online, please call 816.439.4537 and staff will be able to assist you.
You will be asked to briefly describe the work proposed and list the materials to be used. You and your contractor may already have this information at hand as part of the building permit process. The HDRC meets twice a month to review applications. Meetings are open to the public, and the applicant is encouraged to attend.application form
