Design Review Board

Purpose

The Design Review Board was established in April 2011 and has the following duties and responsibilities:

a. To make advisory opinions to the Planning Director (if requested) on all projects proposed for construction or alteration under the purview of the Code.
b. To make final determinations on the compliance of all new construction applications in DT-6, along those frontages designed as Required Shopfront, and for all lots 2 acres or greater. 
c. To grant exceptions to the maximum base heights subject to the guidelines in Section 3.7 of the Code. 
d. Design Review shall not be required for the following:

  • Interior alterations and changes in use
  • Exterior alterations in the first or second layer that are considered maintenance or minor in nature and are otherwise compliant with the Code
  • Exterior alterations not visible from the right-of-way
  • Accessory structures in the third layer
  • Expansions or alterations to parking in the third layer
  • Signs in accordance with the Code

 

Legal Status

The decision of the Design Review Board with respect to Discretionary Review must be final, subject only to appeal thereof to the courts of the State of South Carolina in accordance with applicable law. Discretionary Review is a ruling that would permit a change necessitated by a site-specific condition, building-specific condition or an innovative manner to fulfill the overall design intent of the Code. The Design Review Board shall have the authority to approve, approve with conditions or disapprove a request for Discretionary Review. Before Discretionary relief may be granted, a public hearing is required for the portion of the project plan that is necessary to rule on the specific relief requested.
