Woodlawn Lake Area
Neighborhood Conservation District

NCD Document

The Woodlawn Lake Community Association applied for the Neighborhood Conservation District designation during the 2008 - 2009 city-wide call for applications period.  In the summer of 2009, the Woodlawn area was selected as a candidate for the next neighborhood conservation district.  

A Neighborhood Conservation District is an overlay zoning district that contains design standards for new and rehabilitative development. Property owners, together with Planning staff, develop the design standards based on the character, form, and dominant architecture of the area. These standards can address building height, size, massing, signage, building orientation, sidewalk location, etc.

The oodlawn Lake Area Neighborhood Conservation District is a result of goals established in the Near Northwest Neighborhood Plan.

Boundary Area:

The boundary was determined, in part, by the Woodlawn Lake Community Association boundary.  It is bound by Woodlawn Avenue to the north, Zarzamora to the east, Culebra to the south, and General McMullen and St. Cloud to the west.  This boundary is conceptual and may change during the 9 - 10 month planning process.
