Where and When

Properties located in both Gateway Business Districts (GB1, GB2 & GBE), the three Downtown Subdistricts (DB, DV, and DH) and the Community Business District (BC) may all require a certain level of design review. For new structures and structures that are remodeling over 25% of their existing structure are subject to design review either by planning staff or by the Design Review Committee.


Applications for design review can be submitted prior to the building permit or can be submitted at the same time. Application fees and review time are dependent upon the square footage of the proposed project. Structures under 5,000 square feet = $210 (10 days by staff) and Structures over 5,000 square feet = $835 (40 days by committee).

Review and action by the Committee on design review applications at Committee meetings are not considered public hearings but are open public meetings available to be attended by any interested persons.
