To establish standards for ALL DEVELOPMENT by implementing quality design for timeless architecture that enhances the community's image, pride and quality of life.
The Design Guidelines provide the basis to achieve quality design for all development within the City of Lancaster. The design guidelines are intended for new construction, redevelopment and renovation of existing facilities, unless the construction is under the control of a Specific Plan where site specific standards take precedent. The Guidelines are designed for a variety of user groups including property owners, developers, design professionals, staff, the Architectural and Design Planning Commission, and the City Council, to use in evaluating whether development projects meet the design goals of the City of Lancaster.
For questions regarding the Design Guidelines, please contact the Planning Department at (661) 723-6100.
