About the Design Review Board
The Del Mar Design Review process is intended to preserve and improve the scenic amenities of Del Mar and to protect the city's natural environment, its scenic vistas and the community's overall aesthetic quality. As part of the review process, application proposals are evaluated by the Design Review Board for their consistency with the provisions of the Del Mar Community (General) Plan and with the City's Zoning Ordinance as well as consistency with the applicable Design Review standards, found in the Design Review Ordinance (DRO).
Volunteering on the Design Review Board is a great opportunity for residents who want to participate in preserving Del Mar's unique community character.
