King Street Design Guidelines Update

The City of St. Augustine has initiated the final design review process in updating the existing "Design Standards for Entry Corridors". The area being discussed stretches from King St.’s intersection with Ponce de Leon Blvd. east to Granada St. and west to the railroad crossing on W. King St. The main goals of these comprehesive updates is to make the guidelines clearer and easier to work with as Design Standards. To learn more about the Design Standards Update, the original Entry Corridor Design Standards, the public workshops, and how to become more involved in the process, visit the King Street Design Guideline Update page.

Historical Markers

With funds provided by the Florida Division of Historical Resources grant (awarded in the fall of 2015), plaques have been installed on over 30 historic properties throughout downtown St. Augustine.  Selected from the list of buildings already posted on wayfinding directory signs, these locations include original colonial buildings and properties individually listed on the National Register.  The markers also include references to a mobile website.  Visit the Historic Property Markers page to learn more.

Historic Waterworks Building

The City is currently working on an extensive rehabilitation project stabilizing and renovating the historic  Waterworks building with a State of Florida grant.

Survey Updates

An update of the City of St. Augustine National Register District nomination survey was recently completed.  This update includes the area that contains the original Town Plan for St. Augustine.

A survey was also completed for the Davis Shores, Anastasia Island area including structures 50 years old or older which has helped to define the area, so that an evaluation can be made whether to proceed with an actual National Register District nomination, or at least create a better understanding of the mid-century development of the area.

Civil Rights Grant

The City recently submitted material to the State of Florida associated with a grant recognizing the contribution of its citizens and establishing landmarks associated with the Civil Rights movement in the United States.
