Corridor Enhancement Districts

This overlay district is intended to protect and promote the aesthetic character and functionality of major tourist access corridors leading into the designated local and national Historic Winchester (HW) District. Such entryways warrant special attention and controls because they promote the general welfare of the community by attracting visitors and generating business through heritage tourism-based economic development.

Enhancement will occur through regulation and guidance of site development including, but not limited to, sidewalks, off-street parking, signage, landscaping, mechanical unit placement, lighting, as well as building materials and architectural features such as roof pitch, broken wall planes, façade enhancements and porches, thereby enhancing the overall appearance of the corridor, while improving access along the corridor through increased walkability and interconnectivity.
