Marin County is preparing Objective Design and Development Standards (ODDS).  This effort will result in a toolkit of standards that, when adopted, do not require interpretation and provide a clear review and approval process. This allows Marin County to specify the design and aesthetics of developments that address topics such as architectural style while accommodating current and future legislation requirements.
