Design Review Committee

The Design Review Committee's role is to advise the Development Review Board on matters concerning exterior alterations to land or properties in the Design Control District.(see map below)


No structure, sign, fence, or landscaping in the Design Control District may be erected, reconstructed, substantially altered, restored, moved, demolished, or changed in use or type of occupancy without review of the plans by the Design Review Committee, and approval of the plans by the Development Review Board.

The Committee is also available to applicants and citizens for design consultations well in advance of the actual submission of an application. Such early discussions with the Committee are encouraged and may provide new ideas, ensure compliance with the Design Review criteria, and save time and money before more formal steps are taken.

The Design Control Overlay District consists of areas within the Central Business Districts, the Capitol Complex area, the Memorial Drive gateway, Vermont College of Fine Arts and CCV  campuses, office park districts, and other designated areas where historic preservation and design considerations need to be considered. The Design review criteria are found in Section 305 of the Montpelier Zoning and Subdivision Regulations, and guidance is provided by the Cityscape I and II workbooks. (see below)
