In some communities, an architectural review board (ARB) is charged with design review of all new construction, as well as changes and additions to commercial, industrial, and multiple-family projects. These towns and cities strive to promote thoughtful, appropriate, and harmonious development from “gateway to gateway.” In these instances, Frazier Associates partners with local government staff to create design guidelines for corridors, downtowns, neighborhoods, and new development areas.
These projects start with a community visioning process and continue through more detailed design goals. Public workshops are a large part of the process and all stakeholder groups are represented. Clearly articulated guidelines, supported by illustrative graphics and checklists, are assembled in the final publication, which can also be made available on the community’s website.
