Maysville/Washington Board of Architectural Review

The Board of Architectural Review, or BAR, is made up of seven members appointed by the Mayor and approved by the City Commission.  The BAR is responsible for selecting the boundaries of the Historic Districts, nominating individual buildings as landmarks, and advising the City Commission, Planning Commission, and other various agencies on matters relating to historic preservation.  The BAR’s most significant responsibility is to review and approve all changes or alterations which affect the appearance of any building within a historic district, or a landmark building.  Please review the Maysville Design Review Guidelines below, as they are a reference for proper changes to a historic structure.

There are two historic districts located in Maysville:  The Downtown Maysville Historic District, and Washington Historic District.

Members of the BAR include:

  • Steve Appelman
  • Orloff Miller
  • Gabriel Ugolini
  • Aaron Caskey
  • Daisy Pate
  • Ben Breslin
  • Terry Elie
The BAR meets on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 5:30 p.m. in the Maysville Municipal Building.
