Design Guidelines

The  Design Guidelines booklet has been created to assist in creative solutions to downtown design while focusing on good design principles and a respect for the character that is unique to Downtown Clawson.

Downtown Clawson Design Guidelines

The new guidelines are a reference guide to support the Downtown Clawson Visioning Report (2014), Downtown Master Plan (2015) and the *City of Clawson Ordinances.

As a community member of the Main Street program, a National Historic Trust program for downtown revitalization, we follow the Sectretary of the Interiors Standards for Historic Preservation in creating our Design Guidelines and Business Assistance Grant Program

Please contact Joan Horton, DDA Director, if you have questions regarding the guidelines. The DDA director and Design Committee team stand ready to help.
