The Pike / Pine Conservation Overlay District was amended in June, 2014 to strengthen measures for maintaining and enhancing the character of the Pike / Pine neighborhood. This amendment was the end of the fourth phase of this project. We are now working with Makers, an architecture and urban design consultant, to update the Pike / Pine neighborhood design guidelines so that the new rules can be effectively used in the design review process. A draft of our revised guidelines will be available for public review in late 2014.
