Submission Guidelines

The Public Design Commission has established general guidelines for pedestrian bridges, artificial turf, distinctive sidewalks, planters, distinctive lighting, newsstands, and commemorative markers. These guidelines are intended to provide a general sense of what the Commission supports, clarify requirements, provide guidance to applicants, streamline the review process, and ensure consistency in rulings.


For design guidelines published by the Public Design Commission and other City agencies, see our Design Resources and Publications page.
