What happens when a building is assigned an initial determination of significance?

The Preservation Commission will hold a public hearing to determine whether it will uphold the initial determination of significance. If upheld, the Commission will impose a demolition delay on the building for a period of up to 12 months, or 18 months for a National or State Register property.
