The Community Design Guidelines are intended to provide design professionals, property owners, developers, and citizens-at-large with a clear and common understanding of the City’s expectations regarding the aesthetics and functionality of development proposals in Grass Valley. In short, they provide direction as to how new or revitalized developments should look and fit into the community.  These Guidelines do not prescribe a rigid formula for design or assume that there is a singular way of meeting the City’s design expectations.  Since the Community exhibits a varied range of circumstances and conditions under which development must occur, the intent of the Guidelines is to encourage creativity within a flexible yet defined framework of design principles.
