Design Review Committee (DRC)

The Design Review Committee is comprised of design professionals who serve on the Historical Affairs and Landmark Review Board (HALRB). One responsibility of the HALRB is to review plans for exterior alterations, demolition and new construction in locally designated Arlington historic districts through a Certificate of Appropriateness (CoA) process.

The CoA process begins with a public meeting with the DRC. The DRC offers free technical and design advice to the applicant and helps finalize the CoA request before it goes to the HALRB for review.

This flowchart shows how an application for a CoA progresses through review by the DRC and the HALRB.
