Design review is conducted by the Design Review Board, a panel of citizens appointed by the Town Council under Ordinance 21-02 (PDF) which was adopted on February 22, 2021. All members serve as volunteers and represent specific interest and expertise in planning, design and development.

Design review considers many aspects of a given proposal, including building size, shape and materials and signage. Design review ensures that new development, as well as alterations to existing buildings, maintains and enhances the integrity and quality of the downtown or commercial highway corridor. The review process encourages flexibility, while striving to ensure the aesthetic and functional compatibility of new development with the desired character and economic and social vitality that is articulated in the Vision Plan. During the design review process, a proposal is evaluated against the design guidelines, along with consideration of other development regulations that may influence the proposed project, including compliance with the International Building Code and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
