What does the Design Review Board do?

The Design Review Board (DRB) consists of 5 design professionals appointed by the City Council to provide advice on new development projects and most exterior changes to existing buildings. Applications are evaluated based on our General Plan and Zoning Ordinance design policies and criteria, with the goal of having new projects harmonize with the natural environment and surrounding area.
