Increasingly, communities are implementing design guidelines to promote a broad range of goals. Based in historic preservation, design review is now used to support the conservation of neighborhood character, the economic revitalization of downtown cores, the control of big-box retail and franchise architecture, and the implementation of "green" design.

Whether you're preparing to implement an all-new design review process or just want to keep abreast of current practices, this PAS Essential Info Packet will provide you with a helpful set of resources. Included are background materials on the establishment of successful design review programs as well as samples of design guidelines tailored to a variety of goals, design review ordinances from communities across the country, and manuals to help guide applicants through the process.
