About Hearings If you need assistance in your preliminary design efforts, please contact the Planning Department at (650) 877-8535.
A pre-application meeting is required.
The Board's agenda is mailed to the owner and applicant detailing the approximate time and location.
It is the policy of the Board to take no action on an item unless the applicant and/or a representative is present. It is recommended that the architect attend the meetings to describe the project and answer questions from the Design Review Board.
After the hearing and a review by City staff, a letter will be sent describing information or corrections necessary to address any remaining design concerns.
