    Design Review Board

    The Town Center and West Suffield Center Village Zoning Districts were created as part of the 2004 Zoning Regulation rewrite. For applications within these Village District Zones, the Planning & Zoning Commission (PZC) is required to consider the design, relationship and compatibility of structures, plantings, signs, roadways, street hardware and other objects in public view. The Design Review Board reviews the application and provides advisory recommendations to the PZC regarding the proposal’s compatibility with the scale and character of the Village Districts. In approving applications relating to the exterior of buildings within the Town Center Village District, the Commission shall consider the standards set forth in the “Connecticut Historical Commission – The Secretary of the Interior Standards for Rehabilitation and Guidelines for Rehabilitating Historic Buildings” among other standards enumerated in the Zoning Regulations.

    Design Review Board members are appointed by the PZC to four year terms and are required to include at least one business owner, resident of the district, a licensed architect or certified land use planner, and one member of the Historic District Commission.


    Meeting Schedule

    This Design Review Board meets as needed when there is an application. They work out details of signs, building exteriors, and site features with the applicant and staff prior to meeting with the PZC.
