Barrio Latino Commission

The Barrio Latino Commission has the responsibility of preserving the historic fabric of the District and maintaining its architectural integrity.  The Ybor City Historic District has many character defining features:  pedestrian scale, mixed-use main streets, as well as its unique structures such as the Social Clubs and Cigar Factory buildings.  The Barrio Latino Commission balances the historic past with the growth of the present prosperity.

Design guidelines for Ybor City Historic District does a number of important things.  It is foremost a communication tool between the Barrio Latino Commission (BLC) and the public describing the context of the neighborhood in terms of its history and its architectural styles, while providing a framework or philosophy for design review.  Further, they describe in some detail the building elements that are important to each architectural style in the district and suggest a variety of solutions for rehabilitation and new construction that might best preserve the neighborhood's character.  Finally, the guidelines are used along with The Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation by the BLC when reviewing construction activities.
