The mission of the Design Review Board (DRB) is to promote attractive development in Acton and enhances the overall quality of life for Acton residents. The DRB serves the Board of Selectmen in an advisory capacity regarding proposed commercial development and may, at the request of other Town Boards, provide design guidance on certain non-commercial development within the jurisdiction of the other Town Boards. To that end, the Design Review Board publishes Design Review Guidelines for the Town for mixed-use, commercial and residential developments of 4-or-more units
