This project is part of FY 1991 M-NCPPC Planning Assistance to Municipalities and Communities Program requested by the Town of Fairmount Heights. It provides guidelines for use by homeowners and builders who plan to make exterior repairs or new home construction that are visible from the public right-of-way. The text establishes the importance of guidelines in preserving the historic character of the Town. It also includes a brief history of Fairmount Heights, the importance of the total streetscape and its relationship with infill construction, facade details including appropriate and in-appropriate examples, case studies of rehabilitation preserving/destroying original character, landscaping examples and appropriate plant materials, and possible funding sources.
