Mission Hills Adopts Design Guidelines

On the evening of February 23, David Sargent and Ann Benson McGlone - the STP team's historic preservation consultant - delivered a public presentation of the Final Public Draft Design Guidelines at the Indian Hills Country Club in Mission Hills, which was warmly received by the community. Following the presentation, the Planning Commission voted unanimously to recommend the Guidelines to the City Council for adoption, which occurred on March 6. Over the course of the year previous, Sargent Town Planning worked closely with the Planning Commission, Design Review Committee, staff and community of Mission Hills to prepare Guidelines that expand upon and clarify the design concepts of Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Ordinance, for application to new homes and improvements and expansions of existing homes in each of Mission Hills' several distinct neighborhood areas.
