Our Design Review Boards were created to review and approve the exterior design and aesthetic aspects of building projects to promote good design and continuity, which often impacts the overall appearance and property value of a neighborhood. Any new buildings or any alteration to the exterior of a commercial or residential property must be reviewed by the Design Review Board.


Agendas are available in our Meeting Portal.
