Port Washington Main Street Design Guidelines

Port Washington, New York

BFJ worked with Residents for a More Beautiful Port Washington and the Town of North Hempstead to prepare planning and design guidelines for a model block area on Main Street. The guidelines were developed by studying the historic architectural elements of the entire length of the street, as well as main streets in comparable towns, especially those with a close connection to the waterfront. Responses from the public refined the plans and informed the final design guidelines for the Port Washington Business Overlay District. In December 2012 following completion of the BFJ study, the Overlay District proposals were adopted by the Town.
