The Design Review Board reviews design, colors and materials for projects located within Specific Plan Areas as applicable, Redevelopment Areas, and areas designated by City Council, City facilities or projects abutting or adjoining City facilities, OS-PR and OS-S districts, and General Plan primary and secondary entry nodes. This process ensures that the aesthetic values of the adopted Urban Design Guidelines are implemented through high quality architectural style, superior landscaping and compatibility of design with surrounding properties.
The Design Review Board makes recommendations to the Planning Director, Zoning Administrator and the Planning Commission and may impose conditions or modifications on projects reviewed.
The Board is comprised of five members: one Planning Commission member, one Historic Resources Board member, and three at-large members. At-large terms are four years.
The Board meets on the second Thursday of each month at 3:30 P.M. in Room B-8 located at the Lower Level of City Hall. In an effort to provide the best customer service for our applicants, special meetings are held when the City experiences a large volume of Design Review Board applications. Dates and times for special meetings will vary. Agendas are available to the public the Thursday prior to the meeting.
