The Historic Designation Committee presented an outline document at the September CPNO meeting and that document is being revised based on feedback. Please see below for some basic information, definitions, and itemized steps in the Phases of this process!
We will post the revised document on this website and present it at the October CPNO Meeting and ask for a “Vote of Confidence” at the November CPNO meeting to move forward with the process . This vote is NOT to approve a final Local Historic District Designation but is a vote to proceed with the process of community engagement to draft regulations that we, Candler Park, would like for our neighborhood. Another vote will take place AFTER these regulations are drafted. Aaron Fortner of Canvas Planning Group will lead this process and help us draft the regulations. We will also need to raise funds to pay for his services.
Local Historic District Basics
A Local Historic District...
Contributing and Non-Contributing – Essentially “historic” or “non-historic” according to the district definition. We are were starting with any building or home built in the 1940’s or earlier will be considered Contributing.
Compatibility Zone – The area of a property where any additions, alterations or new construction must abide by the local Historic District design guidelines. For example, Poncey Highlands defines this as the portion of a lot located within 60 feet of the front lot line but no more that 50% of the lot depth.
Compatibility Rule – Elements that are regulated based on the compatibility rule (roof form, architectural trim, etc.) must match the predominant original or historic elements of the historic/ contributing buildings of like use on the same block.
