Glendale Planning and Historic Preservation Commission
Made up of planners, architects and experts in historical preservation, the Planning Commission follows the Village's Historic Design Guidelines when reviewing building permits for appropriateness. These guidelines provide detailed considerations for a wide variety of home improvement projects and ensure that the Village's unique historic architecture remains preserved.
The primary responsibility of the Planning Commission is the enforcement of these guidelines through Appropriateness Reviews for projects within the Historic District. These reviews are required for nearly all building permit applications for exterior renovation and construction projects. The only exceptions are provided for projects which replace “like and same”, meaning there is not a change in material or architecture. The Village Administrator determines if a project application meets this condition.
Planning Commission regularly meets every month, on the first Monday of the month. The meetings are held at 5:30 p.m. at 80 E. Sharon Road, Glendale, Ohio 45246. If you are applying for a building permit within the Historic District, you or someone familiar with the project is required to attend the Planning Commission meeting. All applications are due no later than one week prior to the scheduled meeting date.
