Washburn-Fair Oaks Historic District design guidelines update
This spring, we asked people to share their thoughts and ideas with us by having meetings and group discussions. Thank you for taking part in these meetings! Once we finish writing the guidelines, we will post them here for 30 days. You can tell us what you think by filling out a form online. After that, we will present the guidelines to the Heritage Preservation Commission at a public hearing.
Read notes from past events:
From 2021-22, we hired a consultant team to research and update the inventory of properties in the district. They determined the district’s period of significance to be 1863 to 1939. Properties built during this period are contributing. Properties built after this period are non-contributing. Individual inventory forms are available upon request.
