Design guidelines

The following design guidelines have been drafted specifically for the Evans & Rosedale Urban Village in past planning and community engagement efforts. Many of these guidelines are still recommended for the urban village; however, their use or modification should be appropriate for today’s market.

Because the properties are zoned NS (Near Southside), the Near Southside Design Guidelines will apply.
