In 2003, Historic City News reported that the city felt it was losing control of the ambiance of the city’s entrance ways, specifically along King Street, San Marco Avenue and Anastasia Boulevard, so design standards were instituted for those important thoroughfares — not with the same rules as the historic districts, but with rules that were reflective of the history and desired ambiance of those streets.
Upcoming Public Meeting
September 29, 2016
5:30 – 7:00 p.m.
Alcazar Room, St. Augustine City Hall
75 King Street
Please come to discuss the initial analysis of the Anastasia Boulevard Entry Corridor and give your feedback on the long term architectural vision for the Boulevard. The design and planning team will be available for feedback, discussion, and questions.
That was over a dozen years ago and it is now time to update the design standards for what some call the city’s three gateways.
The first of the three corridors to be examined and have its design standards updated will be Anastasia Boulevard and that process begins with an initial public meeting on Thursday, September 29, 5:30pm – 7:00pm in The Alcazar Room, City Hall. The public is encouraged to attend and participate in this important meeting.
The meeting offers the public an opportunity to discuss the initial analysis of the corridor and provide feedback to the design and planning team who will be available to answer questions and offer details about the scope of the work and the process.
Next month, on October 12, the review will be the topic of a join meeting of the city’s Planning and Zoning Board and the Historic Architectural Review Board.
