Town Clerk Architectural Review Committee

The Architectural Review Committee evaluates all design proposals by considering the following:

a. Landscape and Environment: To ensure the preservation of the natural landscape and/or the harmony of the created landscape appropriate to the site.

For Screening and planting regulations, please see Division 17 of the Building Zone Regulations.

b. Relationship of Structures and Open Spaces: To ensure that the relationships of built up areas and open spaces have been designed so that they are harmonious to the existing structures, terrain and streetscape.

c. Protection of Neighbors: To protect neighboring owners and property users by making sure that reasonable provision has been made for such matters as sight and sound buffers, control of trespass lighting, the preservation of views, light and air, and those aspects of design not adequately covered by other regulations which may have substantial effects on neighboring land uses.

d. Streetscape and Predominant Architecture: To ensure that new designs are consistent and harmonious in relationship to existing streetscapes and the predominant architecture of the design area.

e. Relevant Standard: The ARC may also review relevant standards of Sec. 6-15 and, when applicable, Sec. 6-17 of the Building Zone Regulations in making recommendations to the Planning and Zoning Commission.
