Architectural Design Assistance
The Texas Main Street Program provides limited design assistance within the designated Main Street District to eligible "Main Street Cities." Texas Main Street Program's staff members determine assistance based upon a consultation with building or business owners and the main street manager. If drawings and reports are produced by the Texas Main Street Office as part of the Design Assistance Program, they are not construction documents and they may not be used for regulatory approval, permit, or construction.

  • ADA and Texas Accessibility Standards (TAS): Onsite consultation about general ADA and TAS issues and concerns
  • Building Investigation: Building is examined for evidence of historic materials; maintenance and repair weaknesses identified and possible solutions discussed
  • Business Sign Design and Graphics: Assistance with sign design for building façades, as well as branding graphics for business use
  • Investment Tax Credit Assistance: Assistance is provided on applicability of federal investment tax credits for historic preservation
  • Preparation of Façade Renderings: Provide illustrations that indicate conceptual appearance of building façade(s) if restored or rehabilitated
  • Preservation Consultation: Assistance in determining the historic character of the building and how to make historically-sensitive design decisions (i.e., awnings, canopies, building color, street amenities, accessibility)
