The Historic Zoning Commission received funding in late 2018 from the Tennessee Historical Commission for a design guideline consolidation project. The project began in January 2019. The Commission reviewed a first draft in September 2019 but is continuing to take public comment until March 2020. A revision to the September draft will be presented at the March 18, 2020 public hearing.
The goal of the Design Guidelines Consolidation Project is to consolidate all of the 23 neighborhood conservation design guidelines into one basic set of design guidelines, with individual chapters for each district. All of the neighborhood conservation design guidelines are already very similar but the consolidation will provide an opportunity to reorganize, address issues not contemplated at the time the guidelines were first written, an add clarifying language. The goal is to provide clarity to users of the document.
The process began with monthly meetings with stakeholders who provided regular information and updates to property owners in their districts. Council members appointed the stakeholders from each overlay that is located within their respective district. A series of community-wide meetings followed the stakeholder meetings.

Public comment will continue so additional revisions may be recommended in the draft that will be presented at the March 18, 2019 public hearing.
