Town of Farragut Architectural Design Standards and Related Documents

Architectural Design Standards Overview


The Town of Farragut is embarking on a project to create a comprehensive set of architectural design standards to enhance community image and help implement the objectives of the 2012 Comprehensive Land Use Plan update. This project is led by urban design firm Winter & Company.

The intent of the architectural design standards is to promote consistent, high quality design in Farragut’s commercial, mixed-use and multi-family districts which will enhance appearance and protect the economic base of the community. The standards will be professionally illustrated and include special guidance for unique contexts throughout Farragut.
