Design Guidelines & Standards

The design guidelines provide a basis for making decisions about the appropriate treatment of historic resources and compatible new construction. They also serve as a planning tool for property owners and their design professionals who seek to make improvements that may affect historic resources. Property owners are strongly encouraged to enlist the assistance of qualified design and planning professionals, including architects and preservation consultants.
