Abstract This document uses text and illustrations to describe the goals, concepts and guidelines of the local historic district designation process as they would affect a potential historic district focused on the planned community of Greenbelt. The document is divided into three parts. Part I of the document provides background information that addresses basic procedural questions about the purpose, function and procedures of a potential Greenbelt historic district. Part I also contains a number of recommendations regarding a potential locally designated Greenbelt Historic District including a boundary proposal and map, and a potential design review process. Part II contains an analysis of the historic and architectural significance of the planned community that is the basis for the potential district. Part III contains a set of design guidelines that could be used in the administration of an historic district.
