Small Town Character Overlay District

Purpose
The purpose and intent of the Small Town Character Overlay District Map (PDF) is to repeat the spirit of traditional character rather than imitate style. The Overlay surrounds Apex’s Historic District. The Overlay identifies the architectural qualities that define the downtown character and proposes design standards to maintain that character in new and infill projects.

Regulations & Architectural Standards
Properties that fall within the Small Town Character Overlay District are subject to the regulations and architectural standards in the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) Section 6.3 (PDF) when development and redevelopment occurs and the setbacks for lots within the STC Overlay District can be found in UDO Section 5.1(PDF).
