The Old Town Scottsdale Urban Design & Architectural Guidelines were adopted by the Development Review Board (DRB) on May 2, 2019. Guided by input received from local architects, development team members, stakeholders, community members, and the DRB, the updated Guidelines provide direction regarding site development, building form, design details, and materials – assuring that new development both contributes to and complements Old Town urban design.

The Guidelines encourage and promote unique solutions to design opportunities and challenges. In conjunction with the Zoning Ordinance, the Design Standards and Policies Manual (DSPM), and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Guidelines direct design in a way that takes into account the larger context, complements the established character, encourages universal deign, enhances overall downtown identity, and upholds the values of the community.
