We are having some issues with one of our more signature areas of town and are researching solutions. There are a number of historic homes occupied by Fraternities and Sororites and "light professional" uses along the corridor. We are trying to figure a way to protect the character of the area as a whole and work on getting individual property owners to pursue local historic designation.
I have been reading through the archives and trying to find information about special district overlays. I ran across Architectural Conservation Areas during my search and really like the concept. I am wondering if there is a good way to marry the idea of ACAs with SDOs and maybe add some form based code for good measure? Are there some good examples out there that I can share with the leadership here?
Of course, it is entirely possible that I am completely lost and barking up the wrong tree!
