Development Design Standards Rewrite Project

Project Background

The Town has hired Urban Design Associates (UDA) and DIG Studios, industry leaders in developing architectural design standards for communities, to update Parker’s commercial, industrial and multi-family design standards. Parker’s development design standards serve as the framework for developers to design sites and buildings in the community. Having quality design, construction materials and well-thought-out building sites is of vital importance to maintaining Parker’s “hometown feel” and quality of life.

The 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. 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.
