Board of Architects Agendas

Board of Architects

The Board of Architects consists of at least seven local architects appointed by the City Manager and approved by the City Commission.  The purpose of the Board is “to ensure that the City’s architecture is consistent with the City’s regulations and to preserve the traditional aesthetic character of the community.”  The Board meets every Thursday morning to consider a wide variety of building and development applications such as new residences, new commercial structures, pools, pavement, signs, roof tiles, all building expansions, etc.  For a typical building permit, the Board’s review would involve a preliminary and final Board approval prior to permit issuance.  The Board also makes recommendations on conditional use and hears appealed from the City Architect’s decision. An appeal of the Board’s decision is appeal to the City Commission.  (Sec. 2-301 Zoning Code)
