When you discuss a design review, I wonder exactly how you'd have that work? I hope you don't mean an HPO-style review, where a few megalomaniacs determine which things they like and don't like about a project, and then send to the HPRB whose next act is to lop off a story. That takes care of that.

My most recent example is having HPO weigh in on the shape of the lawn for the new AU Law School Tenley campus, where they decided the stone fence must stay in place even though it is not part of the application nor is the date it was installed even known.

Of course, if I could have folks staff it like me, that would be great. Cafritz site = stinky. Van Ness = okay. But seriously, how exactly would this work?

To make matters worse, what kind of public input would there be? Of course, having more hearings is exactly what the NIMBYs and ceefer66 would want to have, so they could comment on the car parking and the front door and the, well you get the picture.

Please elaborate on how this would work.
