Civic Design Review

Civic Design Review is a review process for projects that meet certain thresholds described in the revised zoning code that went into effect on August 22, 2012. For consideration, these projects will require meetings with a community stakeholder group and an advisory design board appointed by the Mayor. To understand which conditions will trigger a Civic Design Review, see the excerpt from the Zoning Administrative Manual, "My project requires a Civic Design Review". To understand what constitutes a meeting with a community stakeholder group follow this link for RCO Meetings under the Zoning Code.
