A. Building Massing and Orientation 1. The scale of new construction must maintain compatibility with adjacent homes and the overall character of the surrounding area. 2. Architectural elements within the design must be in proportion to the overall structure. 3. The scale of additions to existing homes must maintain compatibility with the size of the existing structure and its architectural elements, as well as with the size of adjacent homes and the overall character of the surrounding area. 4. Foundation height must maintain compatibility with adjacent homes, provided adequate drainage can be achieved. 5. Dwellings must be oriented toward the residential street, and must connect to the sidewalk via walkways perpendicular to the street. B. Façade Design 1. All façades that face a street must have articulation in the form of windows, doors, or other significant architectural features that are projected or recessed to create shadow and visual interest. 2. The number and size of façade articulations must be scaled to the size of the façade to balance a home’s compatibility within the neighborhood with its own unique character. 3. Additions to existing homes must continue the architectural vocabulary established by the original home, and must be informed by the overall character of the surrounding area. 4. Front porches are encouraged, to add interest and scale to the front of a home. Where provided, porches must maintain compatibility with adjacent homes. 5.

Elements of fenestration must relate to each other visually by sharing design features such as vertical or horizontal alignment, depth, or ornamentation such as muntins, mullions, sills, trim, lintels, etc. 3. Façades facing onto immediately adjacent properties must design their fenestration to respect the privacy of neighbors. This may be addressed through the height, size, or proportion of windows, the exclusion of balconies, and the use of opaque or translucent materials. D. Roof Form 1. Roof forms must be varied through a combination of structural articulations such as gables, hips, valleys, ridges, and saddles that complement the roof form of adjacent homes. 2. Roof pitch should be consistent for all sloped roof faces, and should maintain compatibility with adjacent homes and the overall character of the surrounding area. 3.
