The BRLHD recommends guidelines for signage, street furniture, appurtenances, advertising devices and landscaping for each landmark and historic district. The BRLHD conducts surveys to identify and catalog districts, objects, sites, and structures displaying significant historic, architectural, archaeological or cultural value.

The BRLHD also recommends tax incentive programs for historic preservation, as well as informs and educates citizens concerning historic preservation elements. The board makes recommendations concerning the use of state, federal, municipal or private funds to promote preservation and restoration of landmarks and historic districts and makes recommendations to the Planning and Zoning Commission and the City Commission regarding ordinance amendments for preservation, restoration and protection of landmarks or objects, sites, and structures within historic districts.
