The Design Review Board member term runs for four years. The Board considers and reviews applications for rehabilitation and restoration of historic structures, as well as applications for new development, 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. Of particular interest at this time is an expertise in history, building trades, 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 selected appointee’s term will begin immediately and will fill the balance of the current term, which expires on October 7, 2021, at which time the appointee may request appointment to a full term.
