The Board of Supervisors finds that inappropriateness or poor quality of design in the exterior appearance of buildings, structures or signs adversely affect the desirability of the immediate area and neighboring areas for residential, business or other purposes and by so doing, impairs the benefits of occupancy of existing property in such areas, impairs the stability and value of both improved and unimproved real property in such areas, prevents the most appropriate development and use of such areas, produces degeneration of property in such areas with attendant deterioration of conditions affecting the health, safety and general welfare of the county and destroys a proper relationship between the taxable value of real property in such areas and the cost of public services provided therefore.

It is the purpose of the Boards of Architectural Review to prevent these and other harmful effects of such exterior appearance of buildings, structures or signs erected or altered in any neighborhood or on any site subject to architectural review and thus to promote the health, safety and general welfare of the county, conserve the value of buildings and encourage the most appropriate use of land within the unincorporated portion of this county.
