In 2003 the City of Newport created the Nye Beach Design Reveiw District, which put in place architectural design requirements and flexible development standards for new construction or areas of redevelopment. Its purpose is to ensure continued livability through a focus on how the built environment shapes the character of the community. The ordinance establishing the Nye Beach Design Review District requires that within 10 years of the date of adoption, the City Council shall consider whether or not changes need to be made to the district boundaries, policies, and implementing regulations.
