Avondale Estates Historic District Guidelines
Avondale Estates, GA
LAS was hired by the City of Avondale Estates to update the graphic design, organization, process, and requirements of its existing Historic District Guidelines.
Nominated in the 1986 as a National Register with a period of significance from 1921-1924, this district is an embodiment of the “garden suburb” movement and is recognized for the combination of its Town Plan, Landscape Architecture, and Architecture. These guidelines are meant to aid in the preservation of the district and assist the City in the interpretation and implementation of its Historic District Ordinance. Based on the Secretary of Interiors Standards and through a high-degree of stakeholder feedback, the redesign focused on creating a highly graphic and user-friendly document that illustrates the District’s character defining features and makes clear how to go about modifications to its structures.
