Development Design Standards Update
Project Update (April 25, 2018)
New Multiple-Family Design Standards
We are pleased to announce that our consultant team, UDA, has completed the Town’s new multiple-family design standards. Highlights include design standards that strategically guide the design of quality neighborhood living using a seven-step design process that aligns with the Town’s 2035 Master Plan values. The new document is filled with photographs and illustrations that support the development of well-designed multiple-family housing units.
Commercial, Industrial and Mixed Use Design Standards
Our consultant team will now begin work on developing new design standards for commercial, industrial, and mixed-use (CIMU) developments for the Town. These design standards will be drafted in similar format as the new Multiple-Family Design Standards. The intent of the new CIMU Design Standards will be to promote the Town’s desire for the development of high-quality buildings that reflect the Town’s character and create places that foster community vision and a hometown feel.
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.
