Design Review Board

The Urbana Design Review Board serves a critical role in reviewing the design of proposed developments in specified design review overlay districts. The City currently has two such districts: the Lincoln-Busey Corridor (a one-block wide corridor between Illinois Street and Pennsylvania Avenue) and the East Urbana District (the northwest portion of the Historic East Urbana Neighborhood). The Board evaluates projects using design guidelines to determine the overall compatibility of the proposal with the character of the neighborhood.

Meetings shall be held as needed, except the Board shall hold at least one meeting per calendar year. This annual meeting will be held on the second Thursday following the first City Council meeting in January.
