The Design Review Committee (DRC) reviews and approves the design of significant new development projects, such as new commercial development.

The Committee considers building and site design, architecture, colors, lighting, signs, landscaping and other design-related issues. The Design Review Committee has three members appointed by the Director of Permit Sonoma.

There is an architect, a landscape architect and one Permit Sonoma staff member.

Design Review meetings are open to the public, and certain projects are reviewed at a noticed public hearing. Some decisions of the Design Review Committee can be appealed to the Planning Commission.
