After the 1997 flood, it was apparent something needed to be done to preserve the remaining historic buildings and character of downtown.  The Downtown Design Review Board was established to meet those needs.  The purpose of the Downtown Design Review Board is to coordinate the characteristics of structures in the downtown district, preserve and enhance historical character and scale of downtown, to protect from adverse effects of poor design, appearance and inferior quality and to encourage good professional design practices consistent with characteristics of the downtown district, and to facilitate new development within the district.
