All the Historic Overlay Districts for the City of Greenville adhere to a set of design guidelines specifically written to match the historical and architectural significance of each district. The City has Design Review Board – Neighborhood Panel that reviews requests for new construction or repairs. Visit their website to contact them for the review application process: https://www.greenvillesc.gov/1238/Design-Review-Board—Neighborhood-Panel.
