FOR BUILDING OWNERS IN THE HISTORICAL DISTRICT
PAINTING ANY HISTORICAL BUILDING ON MAIN STREET
- The Review Board has responsibility for "procedures and policies" for historic preservation established by the City's Ordinance 05-2011. The process is generally triggered by an application to the City for a building permit. All Main St. buildings come under this Ordinance.
- Building plans are reviewed by the City's Building Inspector. He would advise you regarding adding a second story and any other structural matters. He is responsible for issuing the building permit.
- The property owner must obtain a binder with Ordinance 05-2011 and guidelines for Main Street building alterations, demolitions, etc. It contains photographs of architectural elements that are unique to the Historic District. You can pick up the Review Board's binder at any time at City Hall and or download the package below (also on the forms page). Please review, complete and return to City Hall with a $50 non-refundable fee.
- The binder includes an application for a Certificate of Appropriateness (COA), which you would complete and submit to the Review Board for approval.
- Please don't hesitate to call if you wish to discuss your alteration/rebuilding plans. The Review Board would be happy to informally hear them and advise as to possible next steps.
- We welcome any efforts by property owners to preserve Isleton's unique historical district.
CERTIFICATE OF APPROPRIATENESS PACKAGE (COA)
- A Certificate Of Appropriateness will need to be completed.
- Color scheme needs to reflect the period of significance, dates 1926 through 1941 (1920s-1940s). This can be done by a google search of paint colors from a selected date; for example, “paint colors from the 1930’s”. A spectrum of colors can then be found and chosen.
- When filling out the COA, reference where the paint color information came from (i.e. “google paint color images 1930’s, Sherman Williams Paint Colors 1930’s, etc). Include paint color samples, and details of painting scheme (trim color, door color, building color, etc.)
- Filling out the COA helps the City maintain its database on the buildings within the historical district (a requirement for the city to attain Local Government Certification from the Sacramento Office of Historic Preservation).
