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.
The DRC does not approve or reject projects or make policy decisions.


The mandate of the DRC is to consider and review projects, proposals, development applications, and other items, including:

  • development applications for mixed use, commercial, multiple unit residential, and public buildings, and for institutional buildings if such buildings are subject to municipal review;
  • major municipal infrastructure projects, including the design of bridges and new roads;
  • proposed policies and regulations affecting the community’s physical, built, and/or natural environments; and,
  • any other matters referred to the DRC by Council or staff.
