Update to Anastasia Blvd. entry corridor design standards begins with public meeting

Anastasia Blvd. entry corridor design
September 15, 2016

Initial public meeting scheduled for Thursday, September 29.

Back in 2003, the city recognized that it might be losing control of the ambiance of the city's entrance ways, specifically along King St., San Marco Ave. and Anastasia Blvd., so design standards were instituted for those important thoroughfares, not with the same rules as the historic districts, but with rules that were reflective of the history and desired ambiance of those streets.   

That was over a dozen years ago and it is now time to update the design standards for what some call the city's three gateways.

The first of the three corridors to be examined and have its design standards updated will be Anastasia Blvd. and that process begins with an initial public meeting on Thursday, September 29, 5:30pm - 7:00pm in The Alcazar Room, City Hall. The public is encouraged to attend and participate in this important meeting.

The meeting offers the public an opportunity to discuss the initial analysis of the corridor and provide feedback to the design and planning team who will be available to answer questions and offer details about the scope of the work and the process.

Next month, on October 12, the review will be the topic of a join meeting of the city’s Planning and Zoning Board and the Historic Architectural Review Board.
