Anastasia Boulevard Design Standards

Project Description

logo_final - Copy

In 2003 the City of St. Augustine recognized that the first impressions of the City are the main entranceways into the City before you even get to the historic downtown area.  These “gateways” into the City included King Street, San Marco Avenue and Anastasia Boulevard.  The City then considered and adopted “Entry Corridor Design Standards” for these roadways to guide and regulate the appearance of development as you enter the City.

The update did not change the scope or the intent of the guidelines, but hopefully make them clearer and easier to work with, and clarify the review and approval process. Go directly to the 2017 survey details, results and summary.

The project was identified in the strategic goals adopted by the City, was supported by the City’s vision plan, and was part of the City’s ongoing efforts to update the land development codes and guidelines regulating development within the City.  The intent is to also update the Design Guidelines for King Street and San Marco Avenue after the work on Anastasia Boulevard is completed. This introduction flier provides an overview of the project and opportunities for public input. 

  • The update will not impact the right-of-way or sidewalks of Anastasia Boulevard.
  • The update will not change the scope or area where the requirements need to be met, it will hopefully clarify these issues.
  • The update is not related to any of the issues discussed as mobility planning.
  • The update will not manage or change traffic patterns on Anastasia Boulevard, the guidelines are only appearance guidelines.

Survey Summaries and Design Standards Update Materials

Meetings and Presentations

The public process is an important component of the update to the guidelines.  The City planned a series of workshops and meetings, including public input from the merchants and residents of Anastasia Island, and public hearings with the Planning and Zoning Board (PZB) and the Historic Architectural Review Board (HARB).  This process started in October of 2016 and concluded with City Commission consideration of revised guidelines in late spring/summer 2017.
