Design Guidelines for Building Protection

 The City has developed design guidelines specific for commercial building protection (entryways, exits, windows). These design guidelines have been developed to support pedestrian activity in the Downtown and in other commercial areas of the City and to allow business owners to secure their commercial property (where needed), while also recognizing Building Code and Fire Code safety standards. If you are planning to install exterior building protection for your windows or doors, a Development Permit is required prior to installation.
