This project evaluated the multi-family design standards in the Development Code and created additional Design Principles, Guidelines and Standards which:

  • Identified the elements that constitute good site and architectural design
  • Established desirable design elements that create a sense of place
  • Examined the economic implications of new design regulations
  • Codified Design Principles, Guidelines and Standards
  • Educated the development and residential community about the implementation of excellent multi-family design

Multi-Family with BalconiesAdditionally, a multi-family design charrette was held at City Hall on July 9, 2009. Over 37 people attended including numerous local prominent design professionals.
