Palo Alto to Introduce Eichler Neighborhood Design Guidelines

Eichler homes, the first of which were built in Sunnyvale in 1949, are an architectural signature of the peninsula. In 2009, the City of Sunnyvale adopted its Eichler Design Guidelines, which are available via the Heritage Commission. Sunnyvale’s Eichler Design Guidelines detail a list of Sunnyvale’s Eichler neighborhoods and design guidance to ensure the basic preservation of these distinctive homes. Sunnyvale’s Guidelines suggest that additional protection should be afforded by the creation of Heritage Preservation Districts.

On April 11, the City of Palo Alto is hosting a community meeting to introduce their own Eichler Neighborhood Design Guidelines project:

Tuesday, April 11, 2017, at 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Mitchell Park Community Center, Midtown Room
3700 Middlefield Road
Palo Alto, CA 94303
Attendees are requested to RSVP to

Additional information is contained in this flyer.

Thanks to local realtor John Fyten for the tip.
