Color Palette

The Architectural Review Board has adopted a pre-approved color palette that may be used on previously painted surfaces within the historic districts without approval.  The paint palette and paint chips are available in the Department of Planning’s office at 25 Washington Avenue, 4th Floor.  The palette board can also be viewed at John Lee Paint on Coliseum Boulevard, all Montgomery Sherwin-Williams (Coliseum Boulevard, Malcolm Drive/Taylor Road, and Eastdale Mall Circle), PPG Paints on Hunter Lane, and New Look Decorating Center (Benjamin Moore) on Atlanta Highway.  The manufacturer of the paint does not matter, but having a color that substantially matches the palette does.  Keep in mind many paint stores offer their own “preservation palettes” which are not the same as Montgomery’s color palette.

ARB approval is not required for touch up painting when using the same color already found on the building. If colors are selected from the palette, ARB approval is not required, but please contact our office with the selected colors so we may add that information to our files. If you wish to paint with a color not found on the palette or paint a previously unpainted surface, ARB approval is required prior to the work being undertaken.
