Dear Edgewood-Park City stakeholder, Thank you for your attendance and participation in meetings, workshops, and public forums sponsored by MPC and Knox Heritage on the subject of a historic district overlay expansion and design guidelines update — since at least January of this year. I know that many of you have been involved in community meetings and discussing these topics since 2014.
A design guidelines workshop was sponsored by MPC and Knox Heritage on June 29th. The attendance of about 60 people was excellent and constructive feedback on the design guidelines was received. The comments from this meeting are summarized at the following link:
Most of the comments are incorporated into an updated draft of the design guidelines which will be uploaded to the following link after 5:00pm today:
The anticipated public meeting review schedule is the following. It is possible that the schedule may change to be a month later, but not a month earlier. I will strive to keep all of you updated via this e-mail list, and you can find any updates on this schedule at: and on the PCO Facebook page.
