>> REVISED DRAFT OUTLINE for a Potential Candler Park Historic District
The Candler Park Historic Designation Committee will present this outline at the October CPNO meeting and ask for a “Vote of Confidence” at the November CPNO meeting. 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. 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. Another vote will take place AFTER Candler Park drafts its proposed Local Historic District regulations.
Draft Outline document text only continues below after the drop...
Contributing and Non-Contributing – Essentially “historic” or “non-historic” according to the district definition. Our starting assessment is that any building or home built in the 1940’s or earlier will be considered to be a Contributing structure.
Compatibility Zone (taken from the Poncey-Highland Historic District) – 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. Candler Park can define this in its own way.
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.

Poncey-Highland Historic District SAMPLE REGULATIONS
The below Poncey-Highland Historic District regulations are EXAMPLES ONLY of the kinds of regulations that neighborhoods have written for themselves in recent historic district drafting processes. The Candler Park drafting process will utilize community input to determine exactly what approach to historic district regulations the neighborhood prefers to pursue.
Regulations for contributing structures within the Poncey-Highland Historic District
Regulations for non-contributing structures within the Poncey-Highland Historic District
