The HDRC has review and approval authority over all exterior construction projects within the six HCC Districts (Aldie, Bluemont, Oatlands, Taylorstown, Goose Creek & Waterford) and projects within 35 feet of the centerline in the BCHRD. Types of projects reviewed by the HDRC include but are not limited to: • New home construction • New accessory structure construction (sheds, garages, pool houses, etc). • Alterations to existing structures (changing roof pitch, adding window/doors/porches, removing material, changing materials, etc) • Additions to existing structures • Demolition of existing structures or portions of existing structures • Signage
Yes. The HDRC does not review repair or replacement of material “in kind” (for example, replacement of a standing seam metal roof with a new standing seam metal roof). The HDRC does not review interior projects unless those projects require an exterior alteration (for example – a bathroom remodel that requires adding a window) and they do not have review authority over paint color. If you would like to know if your project would require HDRC review, please contact staff.
Yes! The creation of a new district, or an alteration to an existing district, is considered an amendment to the Zoning Map (commonly referred to as a rezoning). The criteria for historic district designation are outlined in Section 6-1800 of the Revised 1993 Zoning Ordinance. Please contact HDRC stafffor more information.
