City of Houston Historic District Design Guidelines Project
The next community workshop for the City of Houston Historic District Design Guidelines project will be held on Thursday, December 1, 2016, from 6:00-8:30 p.m. at the United Way Community Resource Center, 50 Waugh Drive, Houston, Texas.
This workshop will help property owners prepare to give informed, meaningful feedback on an upcoming Visual Preference Survey, which every property owner will receive in January 2017. Consultants from Winter & Company will explain goals for each district, the various design tools that might be used to achieve those goals, and the factors that make additions and new construction compatible with existing buildings. All information will be presented in an easy-to-understand way, and reference materials will be available online in advance of the meeting. The workshop will also include one or two exercises, designed to help the consultants further understand property owners' opinions about what types of additions and new construction are compatible with their specific historic district. The exercises, as well as all materials, will be made available online for those who are not able to attend.
