Finksburg Gateway Design Guidelines
Location: Carroll County
Type: Design Guidelines
Emerging as a highly desirable bedroom community and experiencing ever increasing growth pressure, Carroll County recognizes that it is no longer a county with small towns embedded in agricultural fields and a different approach in guiding its future development is crucial. In order to meet the challenge of growth and its potentially adverse impacts, PELA was commissioned by the County to develop a set of design guidelines for the Finksburg Gateway Corridor. These guidelines would provide guidance in site design, building bulk and height, streetscape design, lighting, stormwater management, landscape design for new, re- and infill development of all uses.
