4. Design Guidance Review
Design guidance review meetings include applicant-led presentations at which the Design Review Board will offer guidance to applicants. The purpose of these meetings is to determine, with reference to the Design for Bainbridge manual, how the proposed alternatives fit the surrounding context, with a focus on the development’s program, uses, site plan, and massing. The Board will also consider any requested departures, the rationale for those departures and their consistency with the intent and principles of the standards and guidelines. See Appendix A for a complete list of submittal requirements. Additional design guidance review may be required if significant project changes occur after the initial Design Guidance Review Meeting.
