Design Review Board


The seven-member Design Review Board serves as custodian of the City's design policies. The Board reviews both public and private development proposals to ensure that Santa Rosa remains attractive and maintains a "sense of place" which the General Plan sets forth as "unique to Santa Rosa." View the Ordinance establishing the Design Review Board (PDF).


The Design Review Board reviews design proposals in light of adopted design review policies set forth in the City's Design Review Guidelines (PDF). The Board reviews development proposals that have neighborhood compatibility issues and major developments that may have significance to the City's aesthetic character. For more information, see the Design Review page.
