Ellicott City Historic District Design Guidelines Update



In the Fall of 2017, the Historic Preservation Commission and Department of Planning and Zoning launched a project to update the “Ellicott City Historic District Design Guidelines,” which were published in 1998.  The goal of this project is to create a user-friendly document that reflects current preservation standards.  The project will also address issues such as sustainability, the use of compatible substitute materials, flood mitigation and the district’s public spaces.
