Love City Design?

Design Lewiston, a new project to update design regulations found in the Zoning Ordinance, Historic Preservation Manual, and Site Plan and Design Guidelines is now in its third month.

Based on recommendations included in the 2017 Legacy Lewiston Comprehensive Plan, as well as the 2014 Riverfront Master Plan, this new effort will address architectural and site design in a manner that respects Lewiston’s heritage and creates great places for the community and visitors! The updated design regulations will be streamlined, be more easily understood, and ensure cost-effectiveness for the City and our property owners. We encourage you, your friends, family, co-workers, and others who care about our historic city to get involved in shaping this next chapter!
