Del Ray Study


Summary

The Department of Planning and Zoning has initiated a two-part study in the Del Ray neighborhood. The study includes the creation of a residential pattern book to offer non-binding help for owners, architects and builders who are making alterations and additions to historic Del Ray buildings. The second part of the study is a survey of the Art Deco and Streamline Moderne buildings in the neighborhood. The Del Ray neighborhood is partially located within the boundaries of the Town of Potomac, a National Register Historic District. 


Residential Pattern Book

The City has recently hired a consultant to create a user-friendly, non-binding, residential architectural pattern book for the Del Ray neighborhood (including the Town of Potomac Historic District - a National Register of Historic Places district since 1992 with no local regulatory design review). The goal of the pattern book is to help those involved in construction to relate their projects to identified historic neighborhood patterns and styles. The pattern book will describe typical and distinctive features of the overall neighborhood, as well as representative examples of individual properties, and suggest prototypical compatible architectural solutions for rehabilitation and additions, as well as infill for new construction.


Online Survey

If you are a resident or property owner in the Del Ray neighborhood, please take a moment to complete an online survey to help City staff better understand your perceptions of the neighborhood and what information would be most helpful to include in the pattern book. Del Ray Survey
