The Ballard Avenue Landmark District is a nationally recognized historic district established in 1976 to commemorate the neighborhood’s unique place in Ballard’s history. To preserve its special character, the Ballard Avenue Landmark District Board reviews and approves all changes to building exteriors within the district before the changes are made, such as signs, awnings, window transparency, paint colors, street furniture and new construction.

The Board has seven members, five elected by the community and two appointed by the Mayor.  Board members serve two-year terms.  Additional information about the BLD can be found on our website,
