Raymond M. Tarasuck, Senior Counsel with Calfee's Government Relations and Legislation practice, has been re-appointed by Mayor Frank Jackson to serve a second term on the City of Cleveland’s Landmarks Commission.
The Landmarks Commission is responsible for determining whether buildings, sites or historic districts are eligible for designation as landmarks. The Commission follows established criteria listed in the Landmarks Ordinance and uses the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation to review proposed changes. Through the issuance of Certificates of Appropriateness, the Commission reviews building and demolition permits for Designated Cleveland Landmarks and Districts.
The Landmarks Commission is an eleven-member board of preservation-minded individuals consisting of architects, historians, property owners, attorneys, Cleveland City Council representatives, the Director of City Planning and the Commissioner of Architecture.
