West Main Street Architectural Design Control District
The West Main Street Architectural Design Control District is a locally designated zone that governs how the exteriors of buildings should look on West Main Street.  Decisions about whether proposals are appropriate are made by the Board of Architectural Review.

The district serves as an overlay zone to the city's zoning ordinance. The Board of Architectural Review must issue a Certificate of Appropriateness for any alteration to residential or commercial buildings along the corridor.  The ADC guidelines describe the corridor as an "increasingly vital commercial district with strong definition of the street edge and moderate pedestrian activity, typically medium-scaled, turn-of-the-century masonry structures, generally mixed-use with commercial/service below and residential above, street parking with small off street lots." 
The district spans along West Main Street from 14th Street to 5th Street SW. There are three sub-areas.
- West of Tenth Street
- 10th Street to Drewary Brown Bridge
- East of Drewary Brown Bridge
