Urban Design Advisory Committee

This five member committee was established by City Council in July 1994 to review development plans for compliance with the Urban Design Guidelines of Old Town North. Applications are presented to UDAC on an as-needed basis and are discussed during public meetings. The committee provides comments to applicants and staff to guide proposals and, ultimately, makes a recommendation to the Planning Commission and City Council.
