The Broad Creek Historic District Preservation Planning Study reflects the results of a series of design workshops conducted in 2001 by staff of the Planning and Preservation Section of the Community Planning Division, Planning Department, M-NCPPC, for property-owners, residents and others interested in the future of the Historic District. The study updates a previous planning study, provides a history and architectural survey, and clarifies county policies for protection of the historic district. The study, illustrated with photographs and maps, is divided into five major sections: Section I, the Introduction, explains a chronology of planning efforts in the community and the purpose of the present study. Section II contains a detailed history of Broad Creek from the period of Native American occupation to the end of the twentieth century. Section III contains the Architectural Character and Significance complete with photographs and individual site plans of all buildings in the district. Section IV, Planning Context, discusses environmental features, land use, zoning, transportation, parkland and trails in the district. Section V, Visioning Process and Goals for the Historic District, comprises a review of the process and results of the three design workshops. Four Appendices contain the 1987 Design Guidelines, the Historic District Advisory Committee Rules of Procedure, the Historic Area Work Permit process and other regulations, and the implementation strategies from the 1995 Broad Creek Historic District Livingston Road Streetscape Guidelines.
