The Design Review Committee was created to perform design review for all major works in the River District Design Review area, the Central Business District, and hotels outside of those areas.

City Council appoints all nine (9) members of the Design Review Committee, with three members selected from the Downtown Commission, three members selected from the Asheville Area Riverfront Redevelopment Commission (AARRC), and the remaining three members appointed at-large. 

A full description of the Committee can be found here.
