Design Review Manual

The Design Review Manual is legally enabled under Section 17.05.270 of the Zoning Code. The objective of the Manual is to assist designers to develop projects that respect Williams’s rural scale, character, quality, and orientation. Design Review examines a project’s layout, its relationship to the neighborhood, landscaping, parking, driveways, signs and other features. It considers a projects physical features, such as appearance and how well it functions on the site in relation to its surroundings. The Design Review Manual was created to provide designers and the development community specific criteria for future development in Williams. Projects are reviewed by the City for consistency with the Manual. The City welcomes your comments on the Design Review Manual Plan and would like to receive your comments by e-mail at
