The Contextual Design Review Commission (CDRC) is a newly created commission established to promote excellence in single-family residential design. The CDRC provides a voluntary means for single-family residential design review. In exchange for the review, and the applicant's agreement to incorporate recommended design changes, the Commission has the authority to grant a series of adjustments, or incentives, which provide zoning and floor area ratio (FAR) benefits to the applicant. Since the process is purely voluntary, applicants may withdraw at any time, however, withdrawal forfeits all adjustments allowable through contextual design review. By agreeing to participate in the design review process, applicants must follow all procedures and submit all necessary plans as outlined in the Residential Design Guidelines document.
