CBD Code and Architectural Guidelines for Delray Beach, Florida

The highly descriptive Code and Guidelines provide a strong and enforceable framework for good urban development. The clear metrics, requirements for parking, active uses facing public spaces and the workforce housing are worthy of emulation. The required Architectural Guidelines embedded within the Code elevate architectural expectations and ensure adherence to the City’s character while responding to climate and respecting history. The use of a façade proportioning system works irrespective of style. The graphics are simple to reproduce, making the code easy to reproduce and distribute.
