The BAR addresses both preservation and design issues (exterior renovations, additions, new construction and demolitions). The BAR also acts in an advisory role to City Council, and city departments, boards and commissions. They recommend new historic surveys and districts, and are responsible for updating the preservation plan and design guidelines.
