Design Review Committee

Design Review Committee
The City of Sanford currently has two Design District Overlay Zones - one in Downtown Sanford and one in Springvale Village. The Sanford Downtown Design District Overlay Zone offers visitors a focal point for services aimed at both visitors, residents, and workers of the surrounding area.

Sanford Downtown design standards are intended to promote the characteristic qualities of its historic setting. Any development or exterior improvement on a parcel that is located in a Design District Overlay Zone, except for a single family home or demolition of an existing structure, shall require review and recommendation to the Planning Board, Site Plan Review Committee, Planning Director, and Code Enforcement Officer by the Design Review Committee.

The goal of the Design Review Committee is to help applicants understand the basic design strategies that have been adopted in the two Design District Overlay Zones as defined in section 280-15-11 of the City's Zoning Ordinance, and to encourage new development and renovation within these zones to achieve the stated purpose, objectives, and standards.
