It appears that more and more communities are requiring architectural standards as a way to fight big box development and solidify the character of particular districts. Do you have them in your ordinance?
Two part question:
1) Does your Ordinance include detailed architectural standards and if so, how detailed are they. How was the idea of including them introduced?
2) What was the political impression of them? Have they helped to guide development in your community?
We have basic square footage minimums, height maxims, but that is about it.
