DESIGN GUIDELINES

Main Street Design Guidelines

These design guidelines for areas of Downtown Paso Robles and the West Side Historic District were formulated by Paso Robles Main Street and have been adopted by the City Council. The content of the guidelines vary as to geographic location / neighborhood context. The guidelines establish a set of expectations in terms of urban design and are intended to assist the Development Review Committee (DRC) and the Planning Commission in their evaluation of projects that require their consideration.

The Downtown Guidelines apply to the properties that are located in the area bounded by:

4th Street on the south,
Highway 101 on the east,
17th Street on the north, and
Oak Street on the west.

The Downtown Guidelines are divided into Districts (see index map):

Historic District A
Historic District B
Spring Street District
Riverside Avenue District
Westside Historic District

Common to All Districts

Commercial and Industrial Design Guidelines

These guidelines were formulated by the Planning Commission and City staff, based in part on design standards applied in communities with successful economic development programs; the guidelines have been adopted by the City Council. As with the Main Street Design Guidelines, the Commercial and Industrial Design Guidelines are intended to assist the Development Review Committee (DRC) and the Planning Commission in their evaluation of projects that require their consideration. These guidelines would apply wherever commercial and/or industrial development is permitted. Wherever there is an overlap with the geographic coverage of the Main Street Design Guidelines, the more restrictive set of guidelines would apply.
