Anastasia Boulevard Design Guideline Update
The City of St. Augustine has initiated a project to update the existing “Design Standards for Entry Corridors.” The first area to be updated is Anastasia Boulevard. The simple goal of the update is to make the guidelines clearer and easier to work with. To learn more about the Design Standards Update, the original Entry Corridor Design Standards, the public workshops, and how to become more involved in the process, visit the Anastasia Boulevard Design Guideline Update page.
With funds provided by the Florida Division of Historical Resources grant (awarded in the fall of 2015), plaques have been installed on over 30 historic properties throughout downtown St. Augustine. Selected from the list of buildings already posted on wayfinding directory signs, these locations include original colonial buildings and properties individually listed on the National Register. Visit the Historic Property Markers page to learn more.
