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 planning, architecture, landscape, lighting, and signage.
