Architectural and corridor survey for non-core commercial

We are looking to revamp our architectural survey program (a requirement of our CLG status) and need to include the commercial architecture that is outside of our core downtown and often of a more suburban or auto-centered nature with little in common with traditional downtown buildings. We are seeking examples or advice for the survey fields including names for the styles or design features that came into fashion in the 1950-1970s for commercial architecture. We also welcome advice for any fields to include that would prove helpful in future planning studies of these types of corridors that can be quickly assessed at the same time.

I’m presuming you are talking about a historic structures inventory? If so, you may want to contact Indiana Landmarks, which does most of the historic sites and structures inventories for the Indiana SHPO. They have really good inventory form that covers styles/forms for all sorts of architecture.
