Is Design Review constitutional?
The courts have recognized the importance of preserving the character of a community. In 1978, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of the legality of preservation as a planning tool. It stated, "The objective of preserving areas with specific historic or cultural significance is an entirely permissible goal. States and towns may enact land use restrictions or controls to enhance the quality of life by preserving the desirable aesthetic features of a town."
