Public comment period runs through January 19

King Street Design Standard LogoThrough numerous public meetings and an on-line survey in August and September, the city asked for public input as it began to work on a revision of the King Street Entry Corridor Standards.  Now, the resulting draft is available for review and comment by the public through Sunday, January 19, 2019.

The city has three entry corridors, Anastasia Blvd., San Marco Ave., and King St., and each has guidelines specific to their appearances, including landscaping and building exteriors. Originally adopted in 2003, the guidelines were developed as a means to honor the history of a designated area and provide a plan for its future development.  The King Street corridor is the last of the three to go through the process. The area now governed by the guidelines extends from the Florida East Coast Railroad crossing at the western terminus of the City and ends at Granada Street, due west of City Hall.

View the proposed revised guidelines for King Street and the consultant's update presentation, or visit the project’s webpage here for further details.

The document will be reviewed and discussed by the Planning and Zoning Board and the Historical Architectural Review Board, in a joint meeting before being adopted by the City Commission. All meetings are in The Alcazar Room, City Hall, 75 King St.
