The meeting lasted about an hour and was broken into three parts. The first part was an introduction by Karen Gulley of Placeworks, where several different architectural styles were talked about.

After attending several of these workshops over the years, I'm starting to want a red dot that would represent things that aren't liked... seems more expedient to me. ☺
Once the dots were placed and opinions had been shared, Karen went to the easils one at a time and asked for specific input on each.
The main architecture styles considered were Victorian, Mission, Neoclassical, Craftsman and Rustic Modern.
The general consensus was that the Mission style (think of San Juan Capistrano with red tile roofs) didn't really fit here, though elements of such did (shade structures like arcades, trellises and awnings).
|This style works in SoCal, but not so much in Wildomar.|
|A great look for the right type of town, but not well suited for Wildomar.|
|The lines on these buildings are fine, but really look out of place in our city.|
Many in attendance did like elements of the one in the lower right hand corner.
|This style is similar to The Barn, which completed its makeover last year.|
|This look is seen in many places in Wildomar. The Stater Brothers is one example.|
The next two planning commission meetings are set for October 3rd and November 7th. There are several projects that will be discussed at those, and on this workshop will [tentatively] return as part of the November meeting.
If you have thoughts on commercial design standards, plan on attending the November meeting. Your input is encouraged.
