MISSION

The Board of Architectural Review and Development (BOARD) is established for the purposes of: 

 

1. Holistically applying the regulations of the Neighborhood Development Code and, where applicable, the Historic Covington Design Guidelines and similar guidelines adopted by the Covington Board of Commissioners to development within the City of Covington; and

2. Preserving, rehabilitating, and preventing destruction of Covington's buildings, sites, and districts of cultural, architectural, historic, and/or archaeological significance; and

3. Stabilizing and improving property values by encouraging rehabilitation, adaptive reuse, and new construction that will be harmonious with the unique contexts of Covington's neighborhoods; and

4. Regulating development not as a museum but as a vibrant, evolving place with a mixture of people and ideas in which each succeeding generation may grow from the legacy investments in Covington and build with the quality, sensitivity, and long-term view of past generations; and

5. Acting as a liaison on behalf of the City of Covington to individuals and organizations concerned with historic preservation and furthering the education of the public regarding historic preservation issues and concerns.

**The Board of Adjustment AND Urban Design Review Board have been eliminated (effective 10/14/2020). Some of the members of those Boards have been appointed to this NEW Board.**
