All commercial, industrial, office and multi-family residential projects have Design Review approval requirements. The Design Review process enhances important environmental features of the city and ensures that the general appearance of buildings and site improvements are consistent with the goals of the city.
The Design Review Commission (DRC) consists of not less than five nor more than nine voting members. Members of the DRC are appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council. Several members represent the architectural, landscape architectural and engineering professions.
