In January 2010, the City Council’s Public Service and Infrastructure Committee (PS&I) received a presentation from staff concerning the issue of local landmark designation without owner consent. The PS&I members decided that a comprehensive review of the Historic and Archaeological Preservation Overlay section of the Land Development Regulations (LDRs) would be appropriate as well as potential changes to the Transfer of Development Rights, Historic (TDR,H) program. To accomplish this task, the Community Preservation Commission (CPC) formed a Committee on Historic Preservation to solicit input from stakeholders and interested parties. The stated objective was to enhance activities of the CPC and clarify the processes and procedures related to historic preservation, including but not limited to, local landmark designation, the Certificate of Appropriateness (COA) process and the TDR,H program.
At the CPC workshop on April 14, 2010, the CPC voted to establish the Historic Preservation Committee. At the first meeting of the Committee on May 18, 2010, the Committee decided to form five (5) subcommittees that subsequently met individually to focus on the various issues. The subcommittees’ recommendations make up the final recommendation of the Historic Preservation Committee.
- Section 16.20.120 – Downtown Center Districts (DC)
- Section 16.30.070 – Historic and Archaeological Preservation Ordinance

This is a city-initiated application requesting to establish an Artist Enclave Overlay District (“AEOD”) in accordance with Section 16.30.030 of the City of St. Petersburg’s City Code, Chapter 16. The purpose of the AEOD is to accommodate a mix of small-scale, home business uses oriented toward or supporting the visual, performing, and cultural arts, while maintaining the residential character of the predominantly single-family, residential neighborhood.
In December 2013, the City Council voted to initiate designation of the Historic Kenwood Neighborhood Association boundary and the Old Southeast Neighborhood Association boundary, as individual Artist Enclave Overlay Districts. The application was recently scheduled for review by the City's Community Planning and Preservation Commission and City Council.
Existing Sections 16.50.180 titled "Home Occupation" and 16.50.170 titled "Hobbies", allow for a variety of home-based occupations and activities. The various regulations pertaining to production, the prohibition against hosting customers on-site, and the prohibition against on-site sales led to a discussion about the unique requirements of artists. In 2010, city staff engaged the arts community to draft regulations that were uniquely tailored to their needs but remained sensitive to potential impacts upon surrounding properties. Section 16.30.030 establishing the requirements for creating an Artist Enclave Overlay District were approved by City Council on December 16, 2010:
- Art-related activities shall only be allowed as an accessory use to a primary residence within the affected single- family zoning districts. See Section 16.30.030.5.1;
- General office and neighborhood-scale retail shall be by scheduled appointment only and include restrictions on the number of appointments per day;
- Outdoor display of finished products for sale or unfinished products is prohibited;
- Other criteria regulate parking, signage, hours, noise, and production techniques;
- 12 arts-related special events are allowed per year.

Chapter 16 of the City Code is formally known as the Land Development Regulations (LDRs), which include zoning regulations and site planning and design standards. The LDRs in their current form became effective on September 10, 2007 and have since been modified periodically to stay current with evolving community preferences and to resolve minor inconsistencies, improve clarity of understanding and respond to changes in local, state and federal law.
Ideas and requests for improvements to the LDRs are submitted from a variety of sources, including the general public, city council, administration and staff. Improvements are generally processed bi-annually, twice per year.
