Design professional sought to serve on downtown district board

Applications accepted through Jan. 31, 2016 - The city is seeking a qualified design professional to serve on its Derby Review Board to support the revitalization of the city’s Derby downtown district.

Derby is the heart of Commerce City’s historic city dating back to the 1880s, and is considered a key commercial and activity center in future city planning efforts. The ongoing revitalization of the Derby Downtown District calls for diversifying the business community through encouragement of new shops, restaurants and other services while supporting existing business growth. There are 130 individual properties which make up the Derby area, which has a triangular shaped layout bordered by 72nd Avenue, Highway 2, and Magnolia Avenue.

This unpaid, open position requires candidates with a design background and experience in architecture, urban planning or landscape design. Ideally, candidates will have an understanding or interest in revitalizing the Commerce City community. Members collectively review and take action on development applications within the Derby area with the goal of maintaining compliance with the Derby sub-area and design standards.

The Derby Review Board meets a maximum of once a month, the third Tuesday evening of the month, and is comprised of five regular members appointed by city council. The deadline to apply is Jan. 31, 2016. Learn more about Derby, its sub-area plan, design standards, and apply for the position by visiting c3gov.com/derby. The new member is anticipated to begin in the first quarter of 2016.
