Yes. HARC understands the importance of raising historic and significant structures out of the floodplain, but there are certain restrictions on how much you can elevate your structure. It is important to retain the pedestrian quality of the historic district as well as retain the historic house’s proportions and architectural character. As such, it is inappropriate to elevate a structure in order to park a car underneath, as well as elevating a contributing or historic building or structure in order to build a new addition underneath.
Elevating a structure will require review by the Historic Architectural Review Commission.
