Have you ever been surprised by your district's code and zoning regulations? We have! While working with our Main Street programs, it became clear that, over time, code and zoning had changed–sometimes due to the loudest voice at the time and many times–it these regulations no longer made much sense. So we took action! Learn how Main Street Alabama began working with its designated Main Street districts to review their codes and zoning ordinances to determine what was actually on the books and then provide recommendations for best practices that would support economic development in the context of historic preservation.
