The Main Street Wadsworth Design Committee has created a set of design guidelines, in conjunction with and in collaboration with The City of Wadsworth.  The purpose of the guidelines is to assist property owners, tenants, architects, designers, contractors, and City staff, as well as Wadsworth’s Architectural Design Committee, throughout the design review process as it relates to the downtown district.  The hope is that these guidelines will serve as a tool to reinforce both quality and consistent design in the downtown, as well as to assist with the design review process. 

The Historic Main Street Design Guidelines have gone through Planning Commission and are on City Council’s agenda for public hearing on September 5, 2017.
