Design Review

Review for Station Area Plan
DESIGN REVIEW APPROVAL PROCESS FOR STATION AREA PLAN
Design review in the absence of design guidelines and a formalized review process is
arbitrary and ineffective.

Design review evaluates a project for compliance with a set of non-regulatory design guidelines. The design review process and criteria of evaluation should be clearly defined to provide developers with a dependable process for meeting the City’s expectations.


Crandall Arambula works with cities to develop the design review processes that best fit their development environment. Multiple tracks can be created to accommodate different types of projects. We also provide training sessions to ensure that staff are comfortable and consistent in administering the design review process.
