IMPORTANT UPDATE: Please note that as the City is responding to the current COVID-19 health crisis, it is important to keep members of the public, the Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation (CHAP), and staff as safe as possible. For that reason, we will conduct this meeting as a remote video conference meeting through WebEx. We will continue to update you as needed.
