The Land Use/Design Review Committee plays a significant role in shaping the appearance and development of Point Richmond. The work of the committee is to review plans for new construction and renovations to assure that they are consistent with applicable city codes and enhance the neighborhood.
Committee recommendations are made by a consensus of the members present. The projects and LUDRC recommendations are then reviewed by the General Membership. Once recommendations are finalized and approved by the General Membership they are forwarded to the Planning Department for consideration during the project review process. The recommendations are included in minutes of the meeting which are published in the Newsletter of the following month.
Meetings are open to the public.

Point Richmond Historic District:
If this is a contributing structure to the Point Richmond Historic District, exterior changes will have to conform to the Secretary of the Interior’s standards. If exterior alterations are contemplated, it would be a good idea to retain a historic architect.
