Historic Resource Design Guidelines

On May 25, 2021, the City Council unanimously adopted the long awaited Historic Resources Ordinance Amendments and Historic Resources Design Guidelines. The Historic Resources Ordinance includes essential updates to continue protecting and preserving historic resources, including the ability to adopt Historic Districts. For owners of historic resources, the companion Historic Resource Design Guidelines assist in designing successful alterations, additions and even new construction next to a historic resource.
