The exploded axonometric above is an illustrated version of the Ocean Park District Zoning By-Laws which regulate all structures in the Ocean Park District of Oak Bluffs.  The area is of high historical significance and structures are withheld to abide by strict zoning requirements to preserve the architectural and visual character of what is known to be one of the most historically significant and eclectic residential compositions in the country.   Once you click to enlarge the image above, it will become evident that many of the by-laws are very detailed and strict.  They are not intended to hinder creativity and expression, as they are to be channeled into the level of wood detailing and unique color combinations of the houses.  To read the Copeland Area Regulations if full, please CLICK HERE!

On another note, the labels in the exploded axonometric are in the font “Futura”.  All work produced by the Martha’s Vineyard Commission is in the Futura font.

Live well and be well,
