Individually Protected Properties

Straight from city's website: "In Charlottesville historic resources may be designated as part of a historic district, or may be individually designated. Individual properties are designated for protection through zoning because City Council has determined them to be of special historic, cultural, or architectural value.
"All Individually Protected Properties are subject to review by the Board of Architectural Review (BAR) for any exterior changes including demolitions. This ensures a public notification and review process before changes can be made to a protected property.
"Individual historic properties may also be recognized on the Virginia Landmarks Register or the National Register of Historic Places. State or National designation is an honorary recognition that, unlike local designation, does not impose any review restrictions. A significant benefit of State or National designation is that such properties may qualify for income tax credits for rehabilitation work."
