Daufuskie Island Code

Based on the SmartCode, the Daufuskie Island Code is uniquely structured by defining a hierarchy of regulating levels starting with Conservation and Urban Sectors, followed by Place Types, Zoning Districts, Street Types, and Frontage Types. The code envisions preserving the unique cultural heritage of the island while promoting appropriate pedestrian-oriented urban forms in specified areas. It incorporates important aspects of urban theory such as pedestrian watersheds, centers of activity, place types, block size and effective street networks. Highly illustrated, but perhaps a bit overwhelming if not a bit confusing in layout, it incorporates both standards and architectural guidelines with guidelines focusing on more detailed architectural features such as fences, overhangs, chimneys, and porches.
