My property is within a Town Historic District; do I need HDRC approval for my project?

No. The Towns of Leesburg, Middleburg, and Purcellville each administer their own separate historic district regulations through their architectural review boards. Projects within the incorporated towns should refer to the historic district guidelines for the respective town.
