The Bayside Design Review Committee is appointed by the Board of Supervisors to ensure that new development is compatible with the physical setting of the site and the visual character of the communities of Palomar Park, Devonshire and along Middlefield Road in North Fair Oaks. Specific design standards for each community have been adopted by the County (contained in the Design Review (DR) Zoning Ordinance (Chapter 28.1)) which are used by the Committee to evaluate and take action on each application.

Public hearings for the Bayside Design Review Committee are held on the first Wednesday of each month. Meetings are held in Room 101 of the County Office building, 455 County Center, Redwood City.  Construction over 500 sq. ft. is subject to committee review and application requirements. Minor repair, replacement and construction up to 500 sq. ft. that complies with zoning district requirements may be exempt from committee review but subject to application requirements for an exemption. For additional information, please call Erica Adams at (650) 363-1828 or the Planning Counter at (650) 363-1825.
