The Design Review Board member term runs for four years. The Board considers and reviews rehabilitation and restoration of historic structures to encourage better design and site planning. The City’s Historic District represents an economic and cultural asset to the City and design review helps preserve this asset by keeping its character intact.
Applicants to the Design Review Board should be knowledgeable in matters of design and aesthetic judgment by virtue of training, education, and/or experience, and should possess qualities of impartiality and broad judgment, and an ability to review two-dimensional plans. Desired qualifications for Board members include an expertise in the fields of architecture, history, building trades, landscape architecture, graphic, interior, and industrial design, and/or land development.
Eligible applicants are those with an interest in the City as a result of either living, working, owning property or business in the City, and/or belonging to one of the City’s civic organizations. All City board and commission members are volunteers serving without compensation.
The vacancy is created by Boardmember Darcy Mertz Krewson’s decision to resign. The selected appointee’s term will begin on January 1, 2018, and will fill the balance of Ms. Mertz Krewson’s term which expires November 1, 2018, at which time the appointee may request appointment to a full term.
