The Apex Historic District (view map) is located in downtown Apex and is a National Register Historic District, which includes residential, commercial, and institutional structures. The district’s period of significance is circa 1870-1950. Architectural styles include Queen Anne, Bungalow/Craftsman, Neocolonial Revival, and commercial style. There are a total of over 150 primary and secondary contributing structures. There are 2 properties in the district listed individually in the National Register of Historic Places. They are the 1914 Apex Union Depot at 220 North Salem Street and the 1911-12 Old Town Hall at 237 North Salem Street.
The Land Use Plan is designed to guide the town staff and local officials in directing growth that effectively responds to the Town’s needs and priorities. The map provides designations on how land is to be used or occupied.
To help preserve the character of our town by keeping it neat and clean, the Town of Apex regulates signs through its Sign Ordinance. The Ordinance allows temporary signs to be placed on properties that are for sale, rent/lease, or where an activity is taking place.
Signs placed at other locations, such as those on other properties or street right-of-ways, directing attention to the sale or activity, are not permitted. All permanent signs and some temporary signs must be Town approved. The Sign Ordinance can be found in Section 8.7 of the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) located on the Apex Planning website.
Section 8.7 of the Unified Development Ordinance provides a description of signs allowed with permit, without permit, or prohibited for specified locations and conditions.
