Historic District Design Guidelines Update

Historic District Design Guidelines update – Kraemer Design Group, a Detroit-based architectural firm, is updating the design guidelines for the Historic District. The last guidelines were completed in 1999, in a non-searchable PDF, and do not include newer materials, environmental adaptations and updated standards. The total cost of the project will be offset largely by a grant the city has secured on the recommendation of the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO). As of June 2024, the guidelines are undergoing the final revision. Owners of historic homes and businesses are invited to submit their suggestions, if they haven't already done so.

 Please submit your comments to the Kraemer Group through June 26, end of day.
