Historical Affairs and Landmark Review Board (HALRB)

The Historical Affairs and Landmark Review Board (HALRB) advises the County Board on historic preservation matters. The HALRB nominates properties for local and national designation and also reviews plans for exterior alterations, demolition and new construction in locally designated Arlington historic districts through a Certificate of Appropriate (CoA) process. The CoA applicants must first go before the Design Review Committee (DRC) – a subcommittee that works with the HALRB. The DRC offers free technical and design advice to the applicant and help finalize the CoA request before it goes to the HALRB for review.

Public Meetings

HALRB hearings are held on the third Wednesday of each month beginning at 7:30 p.m. and DRC public meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the Courthouse Plaza Building, 2100 Clarendon Boulevard, Lobby Conference Rooms Cherry and Dogwood, unless otherwise noted. View the DRC website for DRC meetings and materials.
