City Council in September 2010 adopted the Downtown Design Overlay and associated Design Manual (see links below). This approval incorporated recommended changes from both the Planning Board and Zoning Commission.
Downtown Greensboro is Changing
Expanded interest and development in downtown in recent years has created an exciting buzz for the area around Greensboro and throughout North Carolina. With increased interest in the area by residents, property and business owners, and developers, we are poised to encourage new development that celebrates downtown Greensboro’s unique character and the areas that support it.
Working with numerous downtown stakeholders and the public, the City of Greensboro, Action Greensboro, and Downtown Greensboro Inc. have created a Downtown Design Manual to provide a flexible framework to promote quality design, enhance our urban character, and maintain long-term compatibility.
