The Design Review Committee's major purpose is to advise the board on preservation of the architectural integrity of Village Green as an internationally known cultural landmark and national historic landmark. It's activities include monitoring the architectural status of the common areas, advising the board and manager on maintenance and preservation of the physical components (using the CC&Rs and bylaws as guide), and reviewing owners' applications for architectural alterations to their units. The committee also works with local, state and national organizations on preservation projects related to Village Green.
The DRC reviews all requests for physical changes to the common areas or areas reserved for residents' exclusive use (patios and balconies) but owned by the association. The DRC also reviews requests for interior changes that affect portions of the building that are part of the common areas (eg. walls, electrical infrastructure, plumbing, etc.). After reviewing requests, the DRC makes recommendations to the board, which votes on the request in accordance with section 9.4. (Procedure for Request and Approval of Alterations). See VG Handbook.
Recent Activities in addition to reviewing all change requests and making recommendations on them to the board.

- Committee resolution to replace 150 diffusion plates for unit numbers lacking them was approved in November 2015.
- Board approval of information packet for owners purchasing security doors via Village Green.
- The board approved “phase II” of the DRC resolution, that the DRC investigate the best method and cost to replace diffusers and reproduce historic metal brackets with the cut-out unit numbers in order to replace the stick on numbers. The end product will be a legible, cohesive, historically compatible numbering system for all VG units. Approved Sept 2015.
