Architectural Review Standards

The Architectural Review Standards were enacted in order to promote the economic and general welfare of the City of Middletown and the public generally, and to ensure the harmonious, orderly and efficient growth and development of the areas within the district of this municipality. The City of Middletown is rich in architectural history and culture. The purpose of these standards is to ensure the existence of this fact for future generations. This shall be achieved by enacting legislation that calls for the continued existence, restoration and preservation of historic downtown Middletown and its buildings, the construction of buildings that conform to the surrounding historic styles and making certain that any work done on existing structures is harmonious to the existing historical features of the buildings contained within the district.
