A commissioner’s primary role is to promote the respectful use of historic buildings and districts within their purview. Expertise in history, architecture, and general planning is essential for the responsible management of historical resources. Through a number of case studies, this workshop enhances commissioners’ technical skills by laying out the procedural steps for design review and by examining the various design standards by which commissioners are to evaluate applications. The workshop covers the following design review-related topics:
