2014 DRB Meeting Schedule & Application Deadlines

 

Would you like to serve on the Design Review Board?

The Design Review Board consists of seven members: representatives from the Planning Department, the Planning Board, the Board of Appeals, the Historic District Commission, an architect, a landscape architect or graphic designer and a business person and/or property owner from the downtown. The Board meets the first Thursday evening of each month at City Hall and reviews proposals for signs throughout the City as well as projects going through Site Plan Review with the Planning Board. These projects range from new construction in the downtown, to renovations of existing commercial buildings, to projects along the waterfront. The Board focuses on design elements including: landscaping, building materials and colors, lighting and windows. Oftentimes, the Board’s recommendations are incorporated into the final plans and designs for a project.

If becoming a member of the DRB interests you, please do not hesitate to contact the Planning Department at 978-921-6000 x2343. We will be happy to answer your questions.
