Being an old and historical town, our city boasts of houses that are mostly built at least 50 years or so ago. If you own one of them, you may also want to give its old look a new one by either renovating it or by adding a nice extension to the existing structure.
The City is in the process of developing a pattern book that will serve as a guide for people just like you, who are either adding on to existing homes, or doing landscaping on their properties, or even building new homes.
The goal of the pattern book project is to provide city residents features on their property that fit into the neighborhood.
Eventually, the pattern book will be available online to homeowners, developer and architects, and is intended to serve as a resource to help make it easier for homeowners to create attractive features on their homes and in their yards.
Now here is an event that you may not want to miss out! There will be a public open house with the contractor developing the pattern book on January 10, 2001, at 7 pm in the Council Chambers in City Hall. Please mark you calendar.
