Design and Historic Review

Every planning permit request starts with a Planning Permit Application.   Use the specific permit Information and Checklist forms to determine the additional documentation you need to submit with the application.
Planning Permit Application

There are different types of Design and Historic Review Applications:

  • Small Design Review will be a project that is two or fewer stories, has four or fewer dwelling units, and does not have an historic designation.
  • Large Design Review will be a project that is three or more stories, has five or more dwelling units, or has an historic designation.
  • "Small" Sign Design Review will be for one sign.
  • Master Sign Plan Design Review will be for larger signage; for example, a building with numerous tenants.
Many of these application types will require Plot Plans and/or Landscape Plans.  Be sure to check with a Planner if you have any questions.
