Reducing Legal Appeals
A benefit of design review board meetings is that they have the ability to reduce counterproductive legal appeals by providing an upfront community forum. Review meetings provide the public the opportunity to get an early look at proposed developments and voice their opinions.
While public input could force developers to go back to the drawing board, adding costs and time, they can also prevent greater legal hassle down the road. It leads to earlier resolutions to concerns and oppositions.
Design review, just one of many steps in the commercial development process, can go smoothly, or it can add significant costs and delays to your project. It can even halt your project. All in all, there’s an unpredictability that you undoubtedly must always account for.
