The City of Titusville, Pennsylvania, is preparing a set of voluntary design guidelines that will be tailored to Titusville’s historic properties. The primary focus is on properties in the Titusville National Register Historic District.  A consulting firm has been retained to help the City with this effort. The resulting design guide will provide guidance to property owners, contractors, design professionals, tradesman, and others about the treatment and maintenance of historic properties. The City will encourage use of the design guidelines to maintain and enhance Titusville’s authentic community character. However, no laws or regulations are proposed. Use of the guidelines will be strictly voluntary.

Funding for this work is supported by a grant from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Additional funding was provided by a donor through the City of Titusville.

Public input is important to the process of preparing design guidelines that are meaningful and useful. Completion of this survey will take about 7-10 minutes. You may remain anonymous or provide your contact information at the end of the survey to receive additional public notices about this project.

Thank you for participating.
