Design Review Program Improvements

An example of a building design that considered the site characteristics.
Partnering with the community to improve the design review program.


In 2017, we attended HALA Community Open House meetings in locations throughout the City.

In March 2016, we released draft Design Review Improvement recommendations. The recommendations are located on our Project Documents webpage.

In 2015, we conducted extensive community engagement to get input and ideas from community members and stakeholders including:

  • Two community open houses
  • Interviews with community stakeholders
  • Online surveys
  • Focus group
  • Advisory group of 16 diverse stakeholders

Materials are located on our Project Documents webpage.
