Second Tuesday of each month Agendas & Minutes

4:30pm

City Council Chambers (lower level)
57 E. First Street

City Code


The Design Review Board is composed of seven members who are residents of the City, and who volunteer their services. The Mayor, with the approval of the City Council, appoints the members of the Board.

The Design Review Board is unique in that its composition is set by the Zoning Ordinance to include two architects, two from other design professions (i.e. landscape architecture, engineering, urban planning, interior design or other design-related background), one contractor or developer, and two citizens.

The purpose and duties of the Design Review Board have changed and evolved over the years. The original purpose of the Board was to hear appeals of decisions made by the Building Safety Division regarding the newly adopted Design Guidelines. It now reviews: buildings of four or more stories in height; any multiple residential projects that exceed the RM-2 density range; commercial and industrial projects that have frontage on an arterial street, or that are part of an existing or planned development that has frontage on an arterial street; and any commercial and industrial projects which have, or will have, greater than twenty thousand (20,000) square feet of gross floor area. The Board also Reviews parking garages, and City of Mesa municipal projects.

For a full explanation of the duties and responsibilities of the Design Review Board see Title 11 - Zoning Ordinance, Chapter 71 of the Mesa Code of Ordinances.
