Historic Architectural Review Board (HARB)

Greensburg has created a Board to protect historic landmarks within the City. HARB is an advisory group of seven members appointed to five year overlapping terms. The HARB defines and identifies historic properties and establishes procedures for conserving the landmarks. Its province covers the permits to reconstruct, alter, or demolish identified historic properties.
In conjunction with the creation of the HARB, the City has created two new districts in the City, the Downtown District, which encompasses most of the downtown area, including the registered Historic District and the Gateway District which includes the City’s main gateways,  North and South Main Street, East and West Pittsburgh Street, East and West Otterman Street, and West Newton Street.
The HARB evaluates the appropriateness of exterior alterations, additions or new structures within these two districts.  In addition, HARB reviews the design of signs, landscaping and other exterior features in accordance with standards/design & sign guidelines adopted by the City Council.  It is the policy of the City of Greensburg to protect, enhance, perpetuate, and use structures, sites, and areas which are reminders of past eras, events, and persons important in local, State or national history.  Resources which provide significant examples of architectural styles of the past are unique and irreplaceable assets to the community and should be protected to provide for present and future generations as examples of physical surroundings in which past generations lived.
