Rochester’s preservation board actually has window replacement guidelines. Neat, huh?
The importance of this find for me is that this clearly outlines what they expect when a developer or owner approaches the preservation board with a window replacement request. Although there are no photos, it does give options for people based on the type of window – something that is really useful to an owner who doesn’t know or care about preservation.
I was also intrigued to find out that Rochester sends an annual letter to all buildings within a historic district letting them know they are in a historic district. I guess that policy is in place so there are no questions when it comes to making a change to your historic property.
