Development Design Standards Update

Project Update (Mar 5, 2019)

In 2017, the Community Development Department began work on the update of the Town’s 1999 Commercial, Industrial and Multi-Family Design Standards document. This document has had minor amendments in recent years, with relatively few changes since 1999.  

As part of this major update, the 2019 Development Design Standards will provide detailed standards on urban design and streetscape, and will promote high quality architecture for the Parker community. Based on commonly accepted principles of urban design, the new design standards will reflect the goals of the Town of Parker 2035 Master Plan to preserve and enhance the small-town character of the Parker community.  Once complete, the new design standards will be used by residents, developers, architects/designers, property owners, Town staff, the Planning Commission, and Town Council for reviewing proposed development projects in the Town. 

Project Status: 

The 2019 Development Design Standards Update project has been organized into two main components (component 1:  Multi-Family and component 2:  Commercial, Industrial, and Mixed Use) that will apply Townwide. 

Component 1:  Multi-Family Design Standards
The Multi-Family design standards were completed in the Fall of 2018 and formally adopted by Town Council on November 19, 2018. 

Component 2:  Commercial, Industrial, and Mixed-Use Design Standards
Currently Town staff is working to finalize the second component – the Commercial, Industrial, and Mixed-Use (CIMU) design standards. This update is targeted for completion in the third Quarter of 2019.
