Ellicott City Historic District Design Guidelines Update

Banner

Overview

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.

April 5, 2018 - Historic Preservation Commission meeting at 7:00 pm in the C. Vernon Gray Room at 3430 Court House Drive, Ellicott City, MD 21043

Our review process has changed to better receive public input. At the April 5, 2018 HPC meeting, we will be seeking public comment on Chapters 1-5 from the existing Design Guidelines.

To help guide you in reviewing these chapters, please consider if there are items that need clarification, better definitions or if there are missing subject matters.

Moving forward, we will release a draft of the first five chapters of the updated Guidelines, and will post that for review and comment when it is complete. We apologize for the delay and the change to our process, but think it will be a better approach to further incorporate your ideas. And if you cannot attend, we welcome ideas and suggestions – through email to: preservation@howardcountymd.gov.
