Edenton (NC) Design Standards

The Edenton Historic District was designated as a Local Historic District by the Town of Edenton in 1970 and was enlarged in 1973 and 1999. The district includes most of the original, colonial town; a number of nationally significant buildings; and the Edenton Cotton Mill and associated mill village.

The 2021 Design Guidelines, drafted to replace those written in 2006, include thorough standards for addressing disaster preparedness and prevention, specifically as it relates to climate change and hurricanes. The updated standards also include information on sustainability and substitute materials; additional guidelines for site work and landscaping; updated resources for property owners; and incorporate updated photographs, maps, and formatting.

The new standards are set to be adopted in late 2021.

Chapel Hill (NC)
