Historic District Overlay

Historic DistrictThe purpose of the Historic District is to provide design guidance and standards that recognize the unique architectural character and historic patterns of use and site design, in order to preserve and protect the character, history and culture of the City of Boerne through the preservation, restoration and re-use of its historic structures and facilities.

Because of the cultural impact of this district, additional requirements for use and for development apply.  The requirements of the Historic District replace certain standards of the base zoning and the general design requirements of the UDC.  However, not all requirements are replaced.  If the overlay doesn’t provide a standard or a regulation, the base zoning and general standards of the UDC apply.
