Williamsburg ARB Will Host Building Products Showcase

WILLIAMSBURG-Williamsburg’s Architectural Review Board (ARB) will host a Building Products Showcase of possible additions to its list of permissible building materials.

The event will take place on Monday, May 10 from 2pm to 6pm outside of the Stryker Center on North Boundary Street.

The Building Products Showcase will provide an opportunity for interested individuals to review new materials being considered before the ARB makes a final decision on incorporating the materials into an update of the Design Review Guidelines, a set of rules regarding design elements on structures throughout the city.

 “We want people to be able to experience the new materials by seeing and touching them,” said Erin Burke, the city’s principal planner.

Williamsburg’s Design Review Guidelines were last updated in 2013. The latest update coincides with the Williamsburg’s Comprehensive Plan update.

The ARB will also host several meetings within the coming months to discuss the new materials being considered and offer citizens an opportunity to share their opinions. The updated Design Review Guidelines are scheduled to be adopted in the fall.

Residents can also email Erin Burke at with comments about changes to the guidelines to share with the ARB. To learn more about the Williamsburg ARB and the new Design Review Guidelines, click here.
