This second stage of Design Review is the Recommendation phase. At the Design Review Board Recommendation meeting, the following occurs:

  1. The applicant will present information about the proposed design and how it responds to the Design Review Guideline priorities established at the previous Early Design Guidance meeting(s).
  2. The public may offer comments regarding the proposed design.*
  3. The Design Review Board will offer their recommendations regarding the design to Seattle DCI.
  4. Following the meeting, Seattle DCI will issue a written Recommendation report summarizing the meeting. This report will be sent to those who signed in at the meeting or otherwise requested a copy.

*Please note that public comment at the Recommendation meeting is limited to design considerations. If environmental review is triggered, comments related to environmental impacts (such as traffic, parking, noise, etc) may be sent to Seattle DCI following notice of that review.
