    Design guidelines for big box development

    I'm looking for some good examples of design standards or site plan reveiw requirements for big box development. Does anyone know of any?

    Try Fort Collins, CO; Hilton Head, SC; Sedona, AZ; and the APA PAS Report 489/490 "Aesthetics, Community Character, and the Law"

    If you're interested, I'm currently working with my Planning Board and Heritage Commission on developing Design Guidelines for our Site Plan Regulations.

    If you have information available on the design guidelines you've developed, I'd be appreciative. We are on a tight deadline, but I've found Fort Collins' information very helpful. I would also be willing to share our developments to date.
