CAR Considers New Construction Guidelines

Union Hill is home to a lot of vacant lots. Most of the lots are buildable for single family or multi-family homes and apartments.  

Union Hill is a City of Richmond Old & Historic District. Thus, plans for new homes must be approved by the Commission of Architectural Review (CAR) before a building permit is issued.  

Catherine Easterling, Secretary for CAR writes:

The Commission of Architectural Review will meet at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 8, 2014, at the offices of Odell Architects, 2700 E. Cary Street, Richmond, Virginia.

The Commission will be reviewing proposed changes to the Standards for New Construction in the Richmond Old and Historic Districts Handbook and Design Review Guidelines. Click here to see a copy of the proposed changes that the Commission will be considering at this work session.  A current copy of the Guidelines is available on the City's website: .

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Kind regards,

Catherine Easterling
