Community Character Studies are like building surveys, but taken to the next level. They will frequently include several maps, diagrams, street sections, photographs, and extensive data about the land uses and buildings in a certain area. In the first example on the right, the applicant needed to document the precise use of every building on the subject block, and provide a host of information about the neighborhood at large.
The second example, below, includes a street section showing the visibility of a proposed enlargement that prepared as part of a larger community character study. The map excerpt below it was part of a study showing the location of automotive-related uses relative to the subject site, and showing the area's zoning districts.
