- Design Guidelines
Be forewarned: Although the Design Guidelines may appear, at first glance, to be an intimidating document, it doesn't have to be. Each potential project in the historic district will fall into a specific category (i.e. restoration, rehabilitation, renovation, etc.). While the guidelines document must address all categories, property owners only need to be concerned with the guidelines for the category that applies to their project. To encourage you further, Mossy Creek Foundation is available to provide assistance navigating through the process, so be sure to contact us with your questions.
- Certificate of Appropriateness (COA) Application
The Historic Zoning Commission meets on the fourth Monday of each month. COA applications (including all supporting documentation) must be turned in to Tom Jones at City Hall at least two weeks prior in order to be placed on the agenda. Members of the Mossy Creek Foundation design committee are available to provide assistance, so contact us if you have questions.
