Design Review Committee


The Design Review Committee (DRC) is an advisory committee of Council that makes recommendations to staff and Council on matters of design, and physical and aesthetic impact, including the impartial and professional review of development applications, relevant policies and regulations, major infrastructure and capital projects, and other matters that may be referred to the DRC by Council or staff from time to time.
