centerra design review

the bridge from your vision to reality

The DRC’s mission is to protect the overarching vision for the Master Planned Community and to assist applicants as they navigate the City of Loveland permitting process.

The Centerra Design Review Committee (DRC) was formed to review and approve Development Projects proposed within the Master Planned Community for compliance with the Performance Standards. The intent of these guidelines is to encourage creative individual Site Planning, Architectural, and Landscaping statements that, when viewed as a whole, produce an equally outstanding environment. Its goal is to create a genuine sense of community and harmony between the natural and the built environment. All improvements within the Master Planned Community are required to be reviewed by the DRC prior to submitting applications to the City of Loveland, including (but not limited to): Site, Architecture, Landscape, Lighting, and Signage.

The overall goal of the Millennium GDP is to provide a long-range plan for the future of the eastern part of the City, specifically Centerra and Van de Water, that will encourage quality development that is carefully planned and orchestrated. The purpose will be to ensure that Loveland continues to develop with a high-quality image that enhances the City’s image as one of the premier communities in Northern Colorado.

Achieving a healthy and vibrant image is a primary goal of these guidelines. They advocate a strong and consistent community designing vision for Centerra, with architecture and landscaping that is reflective of the community values established by McWHINNEY. To that end, these Centerra Design Guidelines have been established to assist prospective developers, builders, and designers in developing neighborhoods, buildings, places and landscapes that are consistent with the Community Vision and Values.
