The Local Review Board for the Idyllwild Historic Preservation District last week recommended a historic alteration permit form to the Riverside County Board of Supervisors.
County planning staff revised its proposed form at the urging of the review board. When approved officially, the form must accompany proposed architectural changes to properties, which contribute to the district’s historic value. Owners whose properties have not been designated as contributing do not need to file the form for approval of the structural changes.
Signs and other architectural modifications on non-contributing properties will still need to comply with county zoning ordinances.
The proposed form asks for applicant’s name, the property’s address, parcel location, a description of the proposed alteration, a site plan and architectural drawings.
The next step is for the Riverside County Planning Department to adopt the form for review of contributing properties within the Historic District.
The review board discussed the possibility of a walking tour of the Historic District the morning of the next meeting, Thursday, Sept. 26.
