DRC membership includes a representative from the Planning Commission, a consulting architect, and City staff representatives from the Community Development, Fire,  and Engineering Departments.

The DRC conducts regular meetings open to the public on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month.  There is not always a DRC meeting, but when there are meetings they occur at 9:00 AM in the Council Chamber at City Hall. 

The DRC meeting is the first step in the review and approval process for applications that are required to be approved by the Planning Commission.  At the meeting, the DRC review the proposal with the applicant and provide comments and direction on a variety of design components including site plan, aesthetics, architecture, circulation, public improvements, impacts to surrounding properties, fire safety, drainage and landscaping.

The DRC makes recommendations to the Planning Commission on the design merits of proposals for larger projects.  Based upon the comments received from the DRC, the applicant has the opportunity to revise their proposal prior to consideration by the Planning Commission.
