Background

In 2008, we began to update the 15-year-old citywide design guidelines. We are drafting changes in collaboration with architecture and urban design consultant Weinstein Architects and Urban Planners. We released the first draft of updated Citywide Design Guidelines for public review in January 2010. We published the second draft in March 2011. The Mayor sent final recommendations, incorporating feedback received throughout the process, to the City Council in October 2012.

For more information please see the Design Review Program website.
