Earlier this year, the City of Avondale Estates began the process of updating and improving the current Historic District Design Guidelines.
“The historic homes and landscaping anchored by the lake make Avondale Estates one of the most beautiful and well-designed neighborhoods in Atlanta. This community highly values and strives to preserve its unique historic charm and character,” city officials said in a statement to residents. “At the same time, we recognize the need to maintain, update, and adapt our historic homes and buildings for modern day lifestyles and conveniences. The Avondale Estates Historic Design Guidelines seek to establish clear rules that both protect our heritage and enable adaptation. Doing so not only preserves the community’s identity and visual appearance, but it also attracts others and encourages investment in historic areas.”
