Monroe (NC) Design Guidelines

The South Monroe Historic District was designated as a Local Historic District by the City of Monroe in 1984 and was enlarged in 2008. The district represents the earliest residential development of the city and includes the prominent homes of early twentieth century entrepreneurs as well as more modest housing constructed by middle- and upper-class business owners and employees.

The 2019 Design Guidelines, drafted to replace those written in 2001, include information on sustainability; expanded guidelines regulating additions and new construction; additional guidelines for site work and landscaping; updated resources for property owners; and incorporate photographs from the expanded area designated in 2008. The guidelines were co-written with Jo Ramsay Leimenstoll, AIA.

High Point (NC)

Design Guidelines

The City of High Point has three local historic districts: Johnson Street Historic District (1987); Sherrod Park Historic District (1990); and West High Avenue Historic District (2007). The three residential districts illustrate three difference eras of development in High Point, from the late-nineteenth through the mid-twentieth centuries.

The 2017 Design Guidelines, drafted to replace those written in 1992, include character essays for each of the districts; information on sustainability; updated resources for property owners; and incorporate current photographs from all three districts as well as photographs of county-designated landmarks. The guidelines were co-written with Jo Ramsay Leimenstoll, AIA.
