PART 1 - General Provisions (a) Purpose and intent.
The purpose of the Town of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea Architectural Design Standards is to encourage the local adaptation of the Mid-Century Modern architectural style as the preferred architectural style of the Town, in that such architectural style is compatible with the essential character of the Town, supportive of efficient development, is architecturally and visually appealing, and fosters a sense of place in the preservation of the architectural and design characteristics of the Town’s existing built environment.
(b) Town Architectural Design Standards document - incorporation by reference.
This Town of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea Architectural Design Standards manual (hereinafter referred to as the “Town ADS”), as adopted by the Town Commission and as may be amended from time to time, has been incorporated into Section 30-51 Architectural Design Standards, Chapter 30-Town Land Development Code. In the case of conflict, the Town Code governs.
(c) Applicability.
(1) All development, including new construction, reconstruction, alterations and additions within the B-1-A, B-1, RM-25, and RM-50 Town zoning districts shall comply with the architectural standards and architectural review requirements as provided in the Town Code and this Town ADS.
(d) Architectural styles.
(1) Preferred architectural style. The preferred architectural style of the Town shall be in accordance with the Mid-Century Modern or similar harmonious architecture, except that any buildings the Town Commission has designated as a “historical landmark” shall conform to the architecture of the existing building, as further provided herein.
