Parcels listed in the National Register of Historic Places have been added to the locally designated Historic Overlay Districts and historic Landmarks which are already in iMaps. The National Register Districts layer is for informational and advisory use only. No City reviews are triggered by a parcel being listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Here’s a quick reference list for what historic layers and overlays require a Certificate of Appropriateness (COA).

  • National Register Districts
    • No Certificate of Appropriateness (COA) is required.
  • Streetside Historic Overlay District (-HOD-S)
    • For parcels in the HOD-S exterior changes to a portion of the property require a Certificate of Appropriateness (COA).
  • General Historic Overlay District (-HOD-G)
    • For parcels in the HOD-G all exterior changes require a Certificate of Appropriateness (COA)
  • Raleigh Historic Landmarks
    • All exterior changes to these properties require a Certificate of Appropriateness (COA)

For more detailed information on Certificates of Appropriateness visit our page on the City of Raleigh website. For information on the historic designations visit the Raleigh Historic Development Commission website.
