Project Description:

The North Village Design Guidelines and Standards (“Standards”) express both the overall vision for North Village as well as the precise details for how that vision will be achieved.

The Standards seek to create a memorable and enduring place guided by the principles of traditional neighborhood development adapted to this challenging mountain setting. The goal is to create a place where a genuine sense of community can flourish. The buildings, streets, and public spaces are designed to work together to establish the identity and focus that a town or village needs to help give meaning to the lives of the residents.

The Standards are organized to deal with first the overall community design through the establishment of specific transects and the creation of an appropriate thoroughfare system. In addition to permitted uses and required off-street parking, more specific concerns in regard to building-to-street and building-to-building relationships are documented along with the proposed building types. Finally, detailed instructions are provided for architectural and landscaping design.
