The Board of Historic & Architectural Review (BHAR) will hold a special meeting on Thursday, August 6th, 2020 at 6:30 PM in the Smithfield Center (220 N Church St, Smithfield, VA 23430).
The purpose of this meeting is to hear, review, and decide on all matters that appeared on the agenda for the BHAR’s regularly-scheduled meeting on Tuesday, July 21st, 2020, which were delayed due to the BHAR’s lack of a quorum at that time. Additional items that have come up in the days since, and which are in need of the BHAR’s review and decision, have been added to the agenda of this special meeting.
Owing to the pandemic, applicants who do not feel comfortable with appearing to present/answer questions on their applications have been urged to contact me as soon as possible. In this case, we are planning to call them when their application comes up for review and decision by the BHAR on the night of the meeting. The applicants have been reminded to keep their telephones handy beginning at 6:30 PM on the night of the meeting, and to expect a call from me. They have been instructed to contact me as soon as possible to discuss which number would be the best number to reach them at. In a like manner, members of the public have been urged to submit their comments on these applications to me in writing prior to the meeting, if they have any. These comments will be conveyed to the BHAR.
