Community input and revision process began last October

Following a series of public meetings and the collection of extensive community feedback that began last October, a 30-day public review, and input from the city’s Planning and Zoning Board and the Historic Architectural Review Board at their April and May meetings, the final draft (version 10) of the Anastasia Boulevard Entry Corridor Standards are now available. 

The document is available here or clicking Projects and Publications under the Government/Planning and Building tab at and following the link to the Anastasia Boulevard Entry Corridor Standards.

City staff will present the final draft to the City Commission at its meeting on June 12. That meeting starts at 5:00pm in The Alcazar Room, City Hall, 75 King St. and is available for live viewing on GTV/Comcast Channel 3 or on-line at

Then in the coming weeks, the document will go through the normal ordinance consideration process which includes a first and second reading before adoption.

It was in 2003 that the city recognized the importance of the first impressions made along the main entranceways one experiences even before arriving in the downtown historic areas, including King St., San Marco Ave. and Anastasia Blvd. These “gateways” into the city were important enough that the city adopted “Entry Corridor Design Standards” for these roadways to guide and regulate the appearance of development of these entrance ways. Anastasia Blvd. is the first of the three corridors to undergo an update process.
