Updated Friday, July 24, 2020: The project kickoff meeting between M-NCPPC Community Planning Division (CPD) staff and the architectural consultant was held Monday, July 20. The consultant will soon provide an initial project schedule, and a format for sharing information was agreed upon. Design concepts for the maps the consultant will be creating with M-NCPPC's data were discussed.
M-NCPPC CPD staff have completed identifying and categorizing the existing single-family dwellings in Fairmount Heights. 589 resources have been identified and categorized as shown in the table below:
This project will produce a Pattern Book, similar to the recently completed Mount Rainier Pattern Book, that describes and illustrates via photographs and maps the historic and current dwelling styles found in Fairmount Heights. The Pattern Book will also identify vacant and unused properties and propose several new dwelling design types that would be compatible with the town’s historic and familiar character. The completed book will be a companion the 1993 publication, the Fairmount Heights, Maryland Residential Facade and Property Improvement Guidelines, which will be reprinted and made available again with the new Pattern Book.
