Design Review Guidelines Project

The Historic Preservation Commission has drafted new Design Review Guidelines, which will take the place of the existing Cityscape Workbook  for understanding how to apply the City’s Design Review Regulations and the benefits of historic preservation. 

You can view the new Guidelines ahead of the meeting here:  We recommend this online version where all the levels and information can be viewed, including the details available by clicking on "i" buttons and numbered detail Guidelines that appear on the right-hand side of many of the pages.  However, printed copies will also be available for viewing at the Planning and Community Development Department's Office in the basement of City Hall, or you can download this static PDF version.
