Policy Letter
May 7, 2012

SPUR has been following the revision process for Articles 10 and 11 of the Planning Code for several years and supports the revised sections in their current form. SPUR particularly commends the development of local guidelines for the implementation of Secretary of the Interior Standards, the additions regarding outreach to property owners in potential designated historic districts, the revised timeline for reclassification of Category V buildings and the inclusion of an economic hardship provision.
