At the November 13, 2018 meeting, the City Council approved historic district designations for the three Orange Eichler tracts (Fairhaven, Fairhills, and Fairmeadow) and adopted the Orange Eichler Design Standards. The Council recognized the neighborhoods' significance for Mid-Century Modern architecture and community design and residents' enthusiasm for their homes. Thank you to the Eichler residents for your support for this effort!
The Eichler Historic Districts go into effect on January 11, 2019. After January 11, any projects received by the Planning Division that affect the exterior of an Eichler home will be reviewed using the Orange Eichler Design Standards (OEDS). Please consult the OEDS early on if you are planning changes to the exterior of your home in the new year.
