Stedman-Thomas St. Historic District Design Guidelines

KETCHIKAN, ALASKA

KETCHIKAN HISTORICAL COMMISSION, KETCHIKAN, AK

A set of illustrated design guidelines and draft ordinance were developed for the historic district as part of an on-going preservation effort, and to increase public awareness of design Issues and option in the area. The guidelines were developed with input from three public meetings with residents of the district, and sought to identify the unique qualities and character of the district. The guidelines and draft ordinance may be forwarded to the local planning commission for possible adoption into local zoning code. Earlier work included an architectural survey, description, and evaluation of the individual structures in the proposed historic district boundaries. Recommendations were made for each structure for inclusion to the district based on Federal standards.  Survey work contributed to a successful district nomination to the National Register of Historic Places.
