The windows on the upper floor of our house need to be replaced, and a vinyl-clad window would not be seen as different from the street. Do I need APRB approval?
Yes, because the replacement windows will be a different material from the original ones. The Village ordinace establishes what comes before the APRB as being any change on a visible side of the structure as seen from the public street or waterway. In other words, the APRB determines the appropriateness of any alterations to a visible side of a structure – not whether the change can be seen as different.
