Role of Design Review Board. The Design Review Board serves as an advisory board to the Commission and its staff. The Board was formed to advise the Commission on the adequacy of public access proposed as a part of projects in the Commission’s Bay and 100-foot Shoreline Band jurisdictions. Public access may include both physical improvements as well as visual access. The Board advises the Commission on a project’s effects on appearance, design and scenic views in accordance with the Commission’s San Francisco Bay Plan policies and the Public Access Design Guidelines. The Board’s recommendations are advisory only.
