The Appearance Commission is responsible for enhancing the quality of the built environment in the Village; it reviews all proposed new buildings, and aesthetic changes to existing buildings, signage, and landscaping plans.
The Commission consists of seven appointed commissioners and is staffed by advisors from the Planning and Building Divisions. Commissioners serve three-year terms and are professionals in the fields of architecture, graphics, landscape design, urban planning, and building trades. Complete applications must be received no later than 12 days prior to the established meeting date. Please see the Appearance Commission Application (PDF) for filing fees and submittal requirements. The Commission is the final hearing body regarding design.
