The Design Guidelines are intended to create a building and site design that is compatible with the other buildings in the areas regulated and with the building's neighbors. The following materials are considered to be examples (but not a complete listing) of materials harmonious to the areas regulated:
   (a)   Brick.  Brick should be in colors or color ranges which are harmonious with other materials of the building and the area in which the property is located.  Colors in the red family are encouraged. Glazed brick is discouraged unless it is used only as a minor feature.  Brick should be laid up in common bond; stack bond is strongly discouraged.  Applying any application to a brick surface shall be discouraged.
   (b)   Stone.  Rubble or random Ashlars limestone are encouraged.
   (c)   Wood Siding.  Wood siding in a natural, color stained or painted state.  Stain and paint colors shall be compatible with other buildings in the area in which the property is located.
   (d)   Vinyl Siding.  Horizontal vinyl siding may be used in limited amounts.  Large expanses of vinyl siding are discouraged.  Eight, five or four-inch exposure along with color shall be compatible with buildings in the area in which the property is located.
   (e)   Alternative materials.  Alternative materials may be approved based on compatibility with buildings on or in the area in which the property is located, and as approved by the Chief Building and Zoning Official, or in the case of appeal, as established in 1143.05(b), by the Planning Commission and Council.
