Design Guidelines

The Historic District Design Guidelines were written to assist property owners when planning an improvement project, to ensure that the proposed work will help preserve the historic character of the property and the neighborhood. Remember that any exterior changes to property located within the historic districts are subject to review before the project begins. To request a complete printed copy of the Design Guidelines, contact the Preservation Office.
