I am looking for information on how to regulate residential compatibility in infill situations. Also helpful would be examples of other jurisdictions that have successfully and creatively regulated compatibility. Some specific questions I have include:
1. How can compatibility standards be applied to a development when the architecture is not determined until the house is ready to be built?
2. How can compatibility standards be restrictive without preventing creative design?
3. What if the existing development is not necessarily desirable and you do not want to repeat that same pattern of development?
Any insight on the topic of infill and compatibility would be greatly appreciated.
