Development Design Standards Rewrite Project
Project Update (Nov. 13, 2017)The Town’s consultants, Urban Design Associates and Dig Studio have been working closely with Town Staff to translate the community and stakeholder input into an effective, easy-to-use document for developers, professionals, Town staff and community members. We are pleased to present a draft of the Introduction and Multiple-Family chapters of the Standards for review. We invited you to please share any comments related to the draft with Town Staff.
For the second component, the CIMU, the consultants have consolidated input from the August workshops, staff and elected and appointed officials working sessions, and the community online survey. The input provided will guide the development of the non-residential standards. Town staff anticipates a draft of the CIMU chapter for public review early in 2018.
Project DescriptionThe Town of Parker’s current Design Standards have had minor amendments in recent years with relatively few changes since the document was formally adopted in 1999. Over the next nine months, the UDA project team will rewrite the Town’s Design Standards to reflect current market and design trends. Urban Design Associates and Dig Studio have helped communities like Parker decide what kinds of improvements to multi-family, commercial, and mixed-use developments they would like to see. The document will result in a user-friendly guide that will focus on updated architectural styles, site planning and building designs for the Parker community.
Community Workshop #3A third Community Open House was held on Monday, Aug. 14, 2017 at the PACE Center. The project team held a charrette activity that focused on the CIMU design standards. During this hands-on exercise, participants explored different types of Commercial and Mixed Use developments.
