In order to maintain the high standard of community development that has come to be expected in the City of Arcadia, the Planning Division implements and enforces detailed architectural design standards.

Citywide Architectural Design Review Adopted

The new Single Family Residential Guidelines was officially adopted by the Arcadia City Council on November 15, 2005.  The guidelines, which become effective as of January 6, 2006, are applicable to all homes within the single-family residential areas.  However, properties located within the Homeowner Association areas are not subject to the City design review process.
