Sierra Point Design Guidelines
The Sierra Point Design Guidelines were originally adopted in the early 1980's to facilitate development of Sierra Point as a suburban office park and have been updated from time to time to address particular building sites or design standards. The latest update was approved by City Council in 2001 (Combined Site and Architectural Design Guidelines, Sierra Point - 2001).
Starting in 2005, the City began the process of comprehensively updating the Design Guidelines. This process was put on hold indefinitely in 2012. The tentative draft guideline updates can be accessed below.
