Central Area Design Review Board

SDCI is in the process of creating a new Design Review Board to serve the Central Area. We are currently finalizing our selection of candidates to fill board positions representing local residential, community, development, business/landscape design, and design profession interests.

Design Review Board members evaluate the design of new buildings based on citywide and neighborhood-specific design guidelines; the new Central Area neighborhood-specific design guidelines were recently adopted and are in effect. The boards review large mixed-use developments, multifamily housing, and commercial projects. Board meetings are held twice monthly in the evenings. The first Central Area Board meeting is expected to be held at the end of July.
